CLERK'S REPORT 

The new professional workers in the association have already been recognized. 
It will be of interest to you to know that two churches have either constructed or started 
construction of new sanctuary and four have done the same about a new educational 
plant. Two churches have purchased property 5 one has remodeled 5 one has dedicated 
a pastorium and one has dedicated an educational building. There are eight new 
Brotherhoods in the association. 

There were thirteen churches in this association that show a loss in membership 
over last year, while the association as a whole shows a gain. Looking at the organi- 
zations, the Sunday School and the Training Union Organization's total enrollment 
show an increase 5 while seventeen Sunday Schools and twenty-one Training Unions 
show a reduced enrollment. 

The per capita gifts to missions for the Association for 1956-57 was $9.58 and the 
total amount given through the Cooperative Program was approximately $3 ,000.00 
more than was given in 1955-56. The total mission expenditures for the Association 
for 1956-57 was approximately seven and one quarter thousand more than in 1955-56. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Harrell B. Perry, Clerk 

HISTORY OF MOUNT MORIAH BAPTIST CHURCH 

The Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, located about seven miles west of Durham, was 
organized in the year 1823 at the request of the Flat River Association. The minutes 
of the first conference held in that year indicate that the organization was first known 



38 



Ninth Annual Session 



as The Church of Christ. At this conference the following were appointed messengers 
to the Flat River Association: James Rainey, Willie Burch, and Z. Burch. 

The first message to the congregation was delivered by Elder William Farthing. 
The records do not indicate the meeting place prior to the construction of a church 
building, however, at this service, land was donated by Robert D. Patterson for a 
church site and evidently a building was constructed shortly thereafter. The land was 
not deeded to the church until November 1880 at which time trustees were elected to 
receive the title. 

At services held in 1823 by Elders George Roberts and R. T. Daniels, the following 
were ordained as the first deacons of the church : Man Patterson, William Jenkins, Z. 
Burch, and James Rainey. The church observed the Lord's Supper for the first time in 
1824, at which time it was resolved not to receive any one into the fellowship unless 
they lived within the bounds of the association. T. D. Armstrong was called to be 
the first pastor in December 1832, and in the same month delivered his first sermon to 
the church. 

In 1840 the church had 195 members, 50 of this number being Negroes. In 1856 a 
Negro was elected deacon. At a baptismal service held in May 1868 all candidates were 
Negroes and the service was conducted by a Negro minister, Elder. Calvin Hackney. 
Due to the increased number of Negroes in the membership, their request for permission 
to organize a separate church was granted. The present membership of the church 
numbers 229. 

In compliance with a request from Washington, May 6, 1841, was observed as a day 
of fasting and prayer in consequence of the death of President Harrison. 

The following have been licensed by the church to preach the gospel: Charles E. 
Maddry in December 1889, Garland Pendergraph in August 1930, and Boyce Creamer 
in January 1949. Dr. Maddry, after serving many churches as pastor, became Secre- 
tary of the Foreign Missions Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. 

Mt. Moriah is presently sponsoring all of the church organizations. The Sunday 
School was organized in 1871 and has been active since that time. In 1890 the church 
sponsored two branch schools for the convenience of the community. One school met 
at Couch's School and another at Strain's School. The healthy growth of the Sunday 
School is evidenced by the following average attendances: in 1944 it was 40 j in 1955, 
102 j and in 1956, 136. Mr. W. B. Wallace is the present superintendent. The 
W. M. U. was organized in 1887 and is still a thriving organization with all auxiliaries 
active. The Training Union was reorganized in 1941 and now has an enrollment of 
61. Mrs. W. S. Crutchfield is the director. A Brotherhood was recently organized, is 
active in the support of the church program, and is sponsoring the Royal Ambassador 
Chapter. Mr. F. L. Patterson, Jr. is the president. 

Mt. Moriah has experienced steady financial growth. The first recorded treasurer's 
report, covering a period of three years is a follows: Subscribed — $10.25, Disburse- 
ments, 1833 — for candles, 72 cents; 1834, for church book, $1.00; Pastor for attending 
meeting, $1.50; Pastor's salary, $1.50; Associational fund, $1,005 l 8 35 — Association 
Fund, $1.00; Balance on Hand, $1.50. The second treasurer's report, presented to the 
church in April 1838, was as follows: Balance brought forward, $1.50; Total paid out 
$1,445 Balance on hand, six cents. A budget of $3,120.00 was adopted for the year in 
December 1946. Gifts for all purposes for the year 1956 totaled $8,166.43. 

This church has always tried to plan ahead to meet the need of increased facilities. 
In 1882 a program was launched for the purpose of constructing a new church build- 



Yates Baptist Association 



39 



ing. During the ministry of Rev. J. F. McDuffie, who was called to the pastorate in 
1892, the present church building- was constructed. This building was dedicated in 
1902 in a sermon by the pastor. In 1899, at the request of the church, the county com- 
missioners built a bridge across the New Hope Creek for the convenience of the people 
in attending the church services. A fellowship hall was built in 1944 and in 1947 ad- 
ditional Sunday School rooms were added to the church and a heating plant was 
installed. The church now is engaged in a long range building program, looking 
forward to the construction of a new church building. 

In 1938, under the leadership of C. E. Byrd, the church voted to increase the number 
of services to be held each month, and in 1947 the church, under the leadership of 
L. T. Bridgers, began having services each Lord's Day morning. 

Mt. Moriah has played an active part in the associations to which it has belonged. 
Originally a member church of the Flat River Association, the Mt. Zion Association 
was organized at this church in May 1870. When organized in August 1948, Mt. 
Moriah became a member of the Yates Association. 

The congregation of Mt. Moriah hopes to accomplish even greater things in the 
future due in no small measure to the wonderful foundation laid by those who have 
made their contribution to its progress in the past. Thirty-two pastors have served the 
church in the past, and now, with Rev. Jarvis Brock as pastor, and with all organiza- 
tions actively supporting the church, Mt. Moriah should move forward in a great 
and glorious way.

HISTORY OF MOUNT GILEAD BAPTIST CHURCH 

Mt. Gilead Baptist Church, which is situated about six miles east of Pittsboro in 
Chatham County, was organized as an arm of Mt. Carmel Church in February 1824 
with 20 charter members, some of which were Negro slaves. The first service, held 
in February 1824 was conducted by Elder Farthing. In a conference held after the 
service the following were received by letter from Mt. Carmel, Rock Springs and Gum 
Springs Churches: Mary Smith, Elizabeth Hackney, Rebecca Garner, Jackie Temples, 
Polly Hackney, Elizabeth Ellington and Hannah Ellington. It was at this meeting 
that Joseph Hackney donated the land for a church site and work on the building 
was begun. Money, materials and labor were donated by a large number of the mem- 
bers of the church. This building served the congregation until the present church 
was erected in 1882. 

The first deacons to serve the church were Allen Temples, Mark Bynum, Willie 
Kirby, John Hammack, William Griffin, and Alfred Garner. Thirty-two pastors 
have served the church in the past. They were William Farthing, Isaac Kirby, 
Thomas Armstrong, William Dupree, Levi Andrews, James Dennis, M. D. Freeman, 
George Purefoy, P. W. Dowd, William Lineberry, Jesse Howell, J. C. Wilson, 
Johnson Olive, J. N. Booth, D. D. Edwards, W. H. Edwards, C. L. Greaves, C. L. 
Weaver, D. C. Britt, W. B. Woodruff, W. L. Hays, J. C. Hocutt, A. D. Hunter, 
W. R. Beach, J. M. Arnett, J. A. Hackney, W. B. Waff, H. G. Dorsett, R. R. Gordan, 
E. W. Johnson, Gerald Primm, and T. W. Estch. The most noted of these pastorates 
was that of R. R. Gordan, serving as he did for 25 years, it was during his pastorate 
that the church adopted a new system of finance, marking a new era for the church. 
The present pastor is Wilber Kerchner.

Ninth Annual Session 



The following brethren have been sent out as ministers from the church: Isaac 
Kirby, T. Y. Semore, R. E. Clark, and Roy Morris. At the present time there is one 
ministerial student, Newton Carpenter. 

Eighteen church clerks have served this church, among^ them being Mr. Jeter 
who served continually in this capacity for many years. 

The church, originally a member of the Mt. Zion Association, united with the 
Yates Association upon its organization in 1948. 

At the present time the church sponsors a complete slate of organizations. The 
Sunday School of which Mr. S. J. Mann is the superintendent, has an enrollment 
of 154. Many of the teachers have taught from thirty to forty years. Mr. Jeter 
Hackney has taught for forty years and is presently teaching the Adult Men's Class. 
The B. T. U. has a total enrollment of 37. Mr. Roy Tripp is the present director. 
The W. M. U., Mrs. R. E. Haley, president, has an enrollment of 54, and is active 
in the support of all of the auxiliaries. The church also has a Brotherhood with an 
enrollment of 21. Mr. Robert Hartley is president. 

Since Mt. Gilead has always been noted for its unity of purpose and deep spiritu- 
ality, and with all organizations actively working together, this church seems destined 
to continue to go forward in the future as it has in the past.

REPORT ON NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOMES FOR AGING 

This, the seventh year of operation of the Baptist Homes for the Aging, has been 
the greatest year of expansion, thanks to our Lord for His continued favor, and the 
North Carolina Baptists for their increased support. 

The new Administration and Residential Building was opened June 13. All rooms 
are now occupied, except four in the infirmary, which are reserved for residents who 
will need them. 

The new building increased facilities to 112 residents, counting residents at 
Resthaven and the Albemarle Home. It also added half a million dollars to the value 
of the assets of the Homes for the Aging. 

Another forward step was taken in July when the General Board voted unanimously 
to accept the offer of Don G. Matthews, Sr., Hamilton, N. C, to give $50,000 and land 
on which to build a Home for the Aging in eastern Carolina. This fourth Home will 
probably add space for approximately forty additional residents, thus bringing the total 
capacity of all the Homes to 150. 

Two wills have been probated in Forsyth County in which the Homes were remem- 
bered with sizeable gifts when received. Word has come of other wills in which the 
Homes will share. 

A total of about $85,000 has been received from the February Special Day Offering. 
This represents an average gift of ten cents per Baptist — 850,000 in number. 

The challenge facing the Homes for the Aging at present is to finish paying for 
the new building, although the Baptist State Convention authorized that the Homes 
might borrow up to $175,000 to finish paying for the construction and equipping the 
new building on Reynolds Park Road. Actually it was not necessary to borrow but 
$100,000. Surely, with all North Carolina Baptists responding with a generous Special 
Day Offering on the third Sunday of February, 1958, and with continued gifts coming 
in from other sources as they have been in the past, this balance of $100,000 should 



Yates Baptist Association 



41 



be paid within the year. Accordingly, if every pastor and superintendent of the Sun- 
day School will urge the members of each church to respond to this worthy cause, the 
Baptist Homes for the Aging would be free of debt by the end of the year, 1958. 

The residents, and all connected with the Homes for the Aging, are deeply grate- 
ful for the support received in the past, and join, with the Baptists of our state in 
thanking God for His favor and blessings year by year. 

The state of health of the residents has been remarkably good, considering their 
ages 65 to 97 years.

REPORT ON NORTH CAROLINA CHILDREN'S HOMES 

This has been a busy year at the Baptist Children's Homes. There were 8 1 3 ap- 
plications received ; out of this number only 169 could be admitted to some phase of 
our program. This was a great disappointment to the other 644, and is a challenge to 
our association along with all the other associations to try to provide for the host of 
children now on the waiting list, who according to their pastors that have signed their 
applications, are deserving. 

Last year we were able to serve only 1 5 more than the previous year, for a total 
of 751, of this number 126 were supported in foster boarding homes. 

Many people feel that our denomination should expand this child-care program to 
at least 1000 children annually. 

Another need is the Indian Orphanage at Pembroke, now caring for about 15 or 20 
children. The Board of Trustees of the Baptist Children's Homes at their regular annual 
meeting in May 1957 voted unanimously to recommend to the Baptist State Convention 
in November that the Pembroke Orphanage be made a part of the North Carolina 
Baptist Child Care Program. This, if approved, will cost about $50,000 for a cottage 
and an additional operating budget of about $20,000 per year. 

It is hoped that the money for the cottage can be raised through special gifts. 

Our churches have two plans for supporting the Childrern's Homes. 

Plan #1 is a once-a-month offering and the cooperative program. The Convention 
fixes the amount and this can only be changed by a vote of the Convention. 

Plan #2 is the Thanksgiving Offering. Every dollar of this comes to the Children's 
Homes and may be increased by the churches to meet the increasing needs. This 
ought to be emphasized in November in every church in our association before taking 
our Thanksgiving offering. We ought to increase our Thanksgiving offering at least 
10 per cent to meet the growing need of our child-care program. 

A subscription to the Charity and Children is a good way to keep informed about 
our orphanage work. This paper is printed by the children and is a part of some of 
their training. Individual subscriptions are $1.00 per year, and in bundles of 10 or 
more to one address it is only 60 cents per year. 

It is better to build a Christian boy now than to try to save a delinquent adult 
later. Give to your Orphanage. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. J. Thornton, Orphanage Representative

Ninth Annual Session 



REPORT ON THE BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

Each year our Baptist Hospital fills, a more important place in the life and work 
of North Carolina Baptists. It seems that our churches will make a larger Mother's 
Day offering- than they did last year, making it possible for our hospital to serve more 
sick people than ever before. 

The hospital has 400 beds, 50 bassinets, and admits more than 15,000 persons as 
bed patients. No other hospital in North Carolina is better equipped and now we have 
the best X-ray department in the South. Through our pastoral care every patient ad- 
mitted to the hospital is visited at least one time. Other visits by the Chaplains are 
based upon particular need and special request. 

The hospital provided free services in excess of $500,000 last year in addition to 
free doctor's care for all service patients. This was made possible by individual con- 
tributions, welfare agencies, Duke endowment, and mainly through our Mother's Day 
offering. We need to give every member of every church an opportunity to make a 
generous gift through our Mother's Day offering to help care for those who cannot care 
for themselves. 

Respectfully submitted, 
H. L. Ferguson 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN LITERATURE 

How much good reading have we done lately — during the past year: The in- 
creased tempo of our day and the fact that many of us have lost the art of concen- 
tration contribute to our lack in the matter of the reading of Christian literature. Yet 
it is very encouraging to see that there are many signs of a rising respect for evangel- 
ical literature which should mean a great deal to us as Southern Baptists. Evangelical 
Book Clubs and Publishing Houses are enjoying phenomenal growth and are cir- 
culating books which are both scholarly and sound theologically. The increasing de- 
mand for church libraries is causing us to look at the Christian literature available 
and we naturally classify it. A balanced diet is as necessary in Christian reading 
as it is in eating, and it is well for us to see that different types of literature are 
available. 

1. There is Promotional Literature. The great majority of our Southern Baptist 
literature falls into this category. We are blessed with more magazines and study 
course books which tell us how to promote our various organizations than any other 
denomination. This category includes our Baptist State Paper, The Biblical Recorder, 
which tells us what has happened as well as what is going to happen. The Charity 
and Children which continues to give excellent coverage of conventions, etc., of interest 
to North Carolina Baptists as well as the promotion of our Baptist Homes. 

Our missionary program is presented to us in The Commission and Home Missions. 
The Sunday School Builder , The Training Union Magazine and many other publica- 
tions offer help and suggestions for the organizational activities of the church. One of 
the outstanding publications of our Convention is Home Life, a Christian Family Maga- 
zine edited by Joe W. Burton. 

2. Devotional literature is very scarce as far as our denominational press is concerned 
both from the standpoint of magazines and books. Open Windows is published to pro- 
vide a plan of private daily Bible reading, devotion and prayer. 

3. Study Books — here we refer, not primarily to study course books, but to books

that we can use more as reference books to help clarify our thinking in matters of doc- 
trine, theology and church polity etc. 

Many other classifications could be used in referring- to the Christian literature 
that is available to us today. There is a great wealth of material at our disposal, cer- 
tainly more than at any other time in the history of Christendom. Let us avail ourselves 
of it and make it available to our families and church members. If we are to propagate 
our faith, it is imperative that we understand it. A great deal of understanding can 
come through the reading of Christian literature.

REPORT ON RELIEF AND ANNUITY - RETIREMENT PLANS 1957 

After thirty-nine years, the work of the Relief and Annuity Board of the Southern 
Baptist Convention continues to grow. More than 16,000 pastors and denominational 
workers are enrolled in one of the Retirement Plans — an increase of 1,885 m x 956. 

A total of nearly $2,000,000.00 was paid in benefits to all recipients last year. 
There were 3,174 retired ministers who received $1,626,211.59. The remaining $320,- 
443.24. went to aged preachers and widows as grants in direct relief. 

The long range answer to the problems in this field can be met by enlisting all 
of our pastors and church employees in some retirement plan. Too few of our 
workers are availing themselves of the wonderful provision for retirement, disability 
and death provided in the Retirement Plans. 

As of July 1 1, in North Carolina we have 311 active participants in the Southern 
Baptist Protection Plan — for a gain during the year of 169 members. The North Caro- 
lina Minister's Retirement Plan, which was closed to new members on January 1, 1956, 
now has 600 active members as compared to 787 at this time last year. This decrease 
is due to the transfer of many of the men in the Minister's Retirement Plan who would 
be advantaged by going into the Southern Baptist Protective Plan. Also, we have had 
about 25 members to reach retirement age and annuities have been set up for these. 
About 10 members have died during the year and their widows are drawing benefits. 

When it is remembered that pastor, church, and Convention cooperate in the Re- 
tirement Plan — each paying one-third of the cost, it is difficult to understand a pastor 
or a church not availing themselves of the security provided. We look forward to 
continued growth in this program. 

O. J. Hagler, Baptist Building, Raleigh, North Carolina, is Secretary for Retire- 
ment Plans for North Carolina and is at the service of pastors and churches. He will 
be glad to supply full information and will assist any pastor or church to get into the 
Plan.

Southern Baptist Convention, Dallas, Texas.

REPORT ON SOCIAL SERVICE AND CIVIC RIGHTEOUSNESS 

It is nothing new for us to say that we live in a world of conflict. Some call it 
simply a world in change. Regardless of what we may call it, we are in the midst 
of a great awakening among the people. We stand more than ever to hear a Voice saying: 



44 



Ninth Annual Session 



"This is the way ; walk ye in it." God does not promise us there will be no conflicts, 
but He does promise us the power to overcome them and a peace that will sustain 
us in the struggle. 

Here in this report we have space only to call attention to some of the conflicts and 
say a word about each. 

Christian Home Life 
We consider the home the first and the greatest of our American institutions. We 
still believe, "As goes the home, so goes the nation." Never before have there been so 
many forces working together to undermine the home. The home and the church 
are to work together to make the home Christian. There are no problems connected 
with the home life that devotion to Christ and the Bible will not solve, so we must make 
the home a Christian home. 

The Crusade for Christian Living 
There seems to be a trend in the world to separate religion and morality. Some 
seem to feel that religion is what we know and do about the work and worship of God 
while morality is concerned with the rules of right conduct based on custom and 
practice in human society. The New Testament teaches that they are one as the tree 
and its fruit are one. We warn people not to substitute morality for religion as a 
means to be saved and then we forget to warn them that morality is not a substitute 
after they are saved. We need more and more to preach and practice the whole gospel 
for the whole man. Many of our church members never let their religion interfere 
with their moral behavior. A vital experience with God will bring our moral life 
into the right line with Christian religion. 

Race Relations 

We reaffirm our historic Baptist position concerning the competency of the individual 
soul, the equality of all men in the sight of God and the rights and privileges of every 
person regardless of race. We should seek for a Christian solution to all problems of 
human relations, to practice love rather than hate. What an opportunity for us to 
witness for Christ in other lands. But the people will not hear our witness because 
of our sorry example of hatred and strife toward our fellowman. On this issue we 
are divided in opinions, but let us not be divided in fellowship. These times should 
call us to humility and prayer. 

Separation of Church and State 
The Baptists were the first to conceive Church-State separation ; they should be 
the first to defend it. John Bunyan and Roger Williams have taught us that religion 
is a personal matter between a man and his God, a matter too sacred for the dictation 
of any state or Church. The Roman Catholic hierarchy wants only a Roman Catholic 
God and the only schools they want are the ones they control. The goal is the 
same — domination. With Communism on the one hand and Catholicism on the other, 
we dare not relax our guard or allow our convictions to become slackened and flabby. 
If Rome had its way every Baptist Church in this association would be closed. What 
we are contending for stands at the very heart of religious faith. Only with your 
help, with the help of freedom-loving Americans everywhere and with the help of God 
above all, can we hope to succeed.

Beverage Alcohol 

Against beverage alcohol we must declare total warfare and press for total ab- 
stinence and total legal prohibition. It's high time we did something decisive about 
it, and some things disastrous to it. Too long we have been engaged in a cold war, and 
a losing one. America has come to be the alcohol capitol of the world. Evangeline 
Booth stated the sad facts for us when she said: "Drink has drained more blood, hung 
more crepe, sold more homes, plunged more people into bankruptcy, armed more vil- 
lians, slain more children, snapped more wedding rings, twisted more limbs, de- 
throned more reason, wrecked more manhood, dishonored more womanhood, broke more 
hearts, blasted more lives, driven more to suicide, and dug more graves than any other 
poisonous scourge that ever swept its death-dealing waves across the world." Since 
we see that liquor is a curse to our highways, to our government, her army, our homes, 
our youth, manhood, womanhood, we should launch an all-out attack on the liquor 
traffic. The Bible very emphatically declares "Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging, 
and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise." May God help us to say with one of 
old, "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

REPORT ON BAPTIST STUDENT UNION 
AT DUKE UNIVERSITY 

The Baptist Student Union at Duke provides opportunities for the more than 500 
Baptists enrolled to worship and serve, group discussion and study, and recreation and 
fellowship. xA.ll Sunday activities — Sunday School, Training Union, and worship — are 
in local Baptist churches. Discussion groups are held on campus. Service opportunities 
include assisting the respective chaplains at the Veteran's Hospital and the Butner Hos- 
pital. Teams also visit and assist Baptist churches on invitation. A Duke B.S.U. 
choir is formed, rehearsing, and hoping to receive invitations to sing in local Baptist 
churches. Discussion subjects on campus include the Bible, the church, Baptist beliefs, 
Christians ethics expressed in life, Baptist mission work at home and abroad, and other 
topics relevant to student life. 

Baptist students at Duke participate in the total student program of the North 
Carolina B.S.U. Department. They attend the Fall Convention for students, the Spring 
Conference for B.S.U. Officers, Student Week at Ridgecrest, and other southwide 
meetings for Baptists. 

A concerted effort is made to help our students develop their religious faith as they 
expand their accumulation of knowledge and extend their intellectual abilities. The 
students and all adults involved in the program express appreciation to all who help 
make this program possible and ask for continued material support as well as 
for interest and prayers. 

The B.S.U. at Duke is integrated into First, Temple, and Watts Street Baptist 
churches. These have voluntarily invited the program to work in and through their 
fellowship and give strong support to and encouragement of the religious activities 
for Baptist students enrolled at Duke University.

REPORT ON BAPTIST STUDENT UNION, 
UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA 

(In condensed form full text available through Associational Office) 

I have been asked to give you a report on the Baptist Student Union at the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina and I do that with joy. I would like to tell you of our work 
with married and unmarried students through programs of worship, serious study, 
service and recreation, and of our retreats and conventions. But ... I would prefer 
to speak of the philosophy that undergirds our efforts rather than the efforts them- 
selves. I would share the "why" of our work. . . . 

Colleges and universities of America have a two-fold purpose; to supply technical 
knowledge of a chosen specialty and also to determine the goals toward which these 
specialties will be used. "The task of the University is to send out men and women 
equipped not merely to use and improve the means of life, but to inspire and direct its 
end . . ." (Dr. Kenneth Lindsey, N. Y. Times, June 17, 1955). 

. . . Our college campuses are determining not only what our young people will 
know, they are determining what kind of persons they will be. This makes our campuses 
a mission frontier of first magnitude. . . . The real mission frontiers of the church, I 
am convinced, are where the church crosses frontiers of life — segments of life over 
which the Lordship of Christ has not been proclaimed. Thus, in my thinking, current 
missionary frontiers are not primarily geographic, but political, economic, racial and 
cultural. The campuses of America constitute such a cultural frontier — . . . 

Missions elsewhere are concerned with the man who doesn't know Christ. On the 
frontier which is the campus, we are concerned with the young men and women who 
claim to know him . . . but they are not sure they can find Him relevant to life as it 
is lived in America in 1957. Here are tomorrow's opinion-makers in local, national 
and international affairs; tomorrow's doctors, lawyers, business men; tomorrow's leaders 
in our churches. They are testing and weighing, discarding or stabilizing the values 
they have heretofore held. ... In the process of maturing . . . they are making the 
decision . . . whether the Christian Way will become something apart from life or be- 
come an integral part of life as it is lived day by day. Here, I submit, is a mission 
frontier in which the church has a vital stake, as vital as anywhere in the world. 

Our churches recognize the challenge here in the establishment of our own insti- 
tutions of higher learning. ... If this is all we do, we fail. We fail because four- 
fifths of our Young People go to campuses other than our own. The combined en- 
rollment of Baptist Students at 1 U.N.C. and N. C. State College comes to within four 
hundred students equalling the enrollment of Baptist students at all seven Baptist Col- 
leges in the State! 

On these non-Baptist college campuses the concern of our denomination is ex- 
pressed through the Baptist Student Union, and within this line of reasoning, .this 
student Christian organization takes on an importance all too often overlooked. Needed 
in this kind of intellectual climate is a supplement not a substitute to the ministry of 
the local church. We must have an organization that can proclaim the faith in 
Christ meaningfully, that can provide the means of understanding it and that can pre- 
sent it as a live alternative in the midst of the varying and conflict in faiths on cam- 
pus that clamor for attention and allegiance. This the Baptist Student Union tries to 
do. . . . Let us have done with the idea held too long that this is a superficial or- 
ganization dedicated to the role of being a "home away from home" for lonely stu- 



Yates Baptist Association 



47 



dents. . . . Here is a specialized ministry set in a mission frontier and given a terribly 
important purpose — that of working- on the campus, with the campus administration 
and through campus activities to help our seriously searching students find a faith 
adequate for all of life and then help them relate that faith to all of life . ... This, 
with the immeasurable help of the local churches, is the work of the Baptist Student 
Union. 

Let me share the explicit objectives of the B.S.U. as they are envisioned by us at 
Carolina and indeed all over the State. These were first drawn up by a group of stu- 
dents at Chapel Hill and later expanded to become the official statement of the state- 
wide organization. 

"The Baptist Student Union is the Denomination's special agency essential to supple- 
ment the ministry of the Baptist churches in the college community. Its purposes are: 

To ■proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord of all life, the Savior' of all men, the unifying 
force and central point of reference of all Truth. 

To call all students to an intellectual and emotional commitment to Christ as Lord, 
the object of one's loyalty, the center of one's affection, the foundation of one's faith, 
the motivation of one's evangelistic concern. 

To provide the means of understanding the truths of God in Christ, thereby helping 
students witness to their faith. 

To help students relate their dedication to Christ to all areas of life. 

To afford opportunities for students to put into practice their Christian concern 
in areas of creative service. 

To instill a sense of the worth and meaning of the Christian World Mission. 

To cultivate an appreciation for the Baptist Heritage, a loyalty to the denomina- 
tional purposes and program, and a sense of the worth and meaning of the New 
Testament concept of the Church." 

These are objectives that deserve to succeed. 

Our Lord commanded, "Go ye into all the world . . ." and we all take that com- 
mission seriously. But there is a deeper meaning here than sheer geography. . . . Go 
into every aspect of life and thought, to the places where men think and feel and act. 
This is our commission too, and it relates directly to the market place of ideas and 
values, the testing ground for faiths where our young people spend four to ten of their 
formative years critically re-examining and reshaping patterns of thought, value struc- 
tures, and concepts of what is ultimately true.

REPORT ON NORTH CAROLINA COLLEGES AND 
SOUTHEASTERN BAPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY 

For the past few years at least i 5,000 Baptist young people have graduated from North 
Carolina high schools. Of this number, 5,000 have annually sought to further their 
education within the state by enrolling in North Carolina colleges and universities. 
Of this 5,000 an average of 1,000 only have entered our Baptist schools. Many of the 
additional 4,000 have sought higher education in schools other than Baptist, to pursue 
courses of study not readily available in our Baptist Educational centers . . . but some 
enroll for a far different reason, the lack of space in our colleges. Thus a ratio of 
one to five has come into being. For each Baptist student who enrolls in one of our 
colleges, four enroll elsewhere. 



48 



Ninth Annual Session 



A look at the financial information for our seven colleges gives part of the answer as 



to the ratio of one to five. 

Total value of physical plants ^ $35,000,000.00 

Total annual operating budgets 6,000,000.00 

Income 

Endowments 1,200,000.00 

Baptist Cooperative Program allotments for operating expenses. . . . 465,000.00 

Gifts, Grants, designated offerings 1,035,000.00 

Tuition, general and special fees paid by students 3,300,000.00 

Total income 6,000,000.00 

Baptist Co-operative Program for capital outlay 655,000.00 

Grand Total $ 6,655,000.00 



At first glance the financial program may seem to be very well balanced. We should 
not, however, overlook the fact that the total income of our Baptist colleges barely 
meets the minimum requirements for their continuance. Adequate funds are not readily 
available for physical plant expansion, increase in faculty and administrative personnel 
or to meet the needs for special services so frequently required of our educational 
institutions. 

A capital outlay allocation of $655,000.00 appears to be a sum sufficient to take 
care of rising needs. This is not the case. Reports from the presidents of our seven 
colleges indicate alarming needs for dormitory space, critical shortages indicate 
facilities for married students, libraries struggling to keep accredited, teacher loads 
which affect the quality of instruction due to the impossibility of personal attention 
and crowded classrooms which are non-conducive to the most effective instruction. 
The afore-mentioned needs properly rectified would cost an estimated $6,000,000.00 
within the next two to three years. 

What then is our challenge? By 1965, we expect to see 25,000 Baptist students 
graduating from North Carolina high schools rather than the present 15,000. The 
6,500 now enrolled in Baptist colleges will swell to 12,000, eight years from now. If 
our colleges are having difficulties at the present time how much more difficult will 
their role of educating our youth be in eight years. Unless we act now with swift 
precision and dedication of purpose, the difficulties will in the future be almost in- 
surmountable. The future for our youth is not tomorrow but today. The future of 
the Baptist cause is not tomorrow but today. Within our trained and dedicated youth 
lies the Baptist cause of tomorrow. We must act today so that the tomorrow might not 
be neglected. 

Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, though young in years, has grown 
close to the hearts of North Carolina Baptists in the few years since its inception. To 
keep pace with the needs in theologial education, our seminary at Wake Forest con- 
tinues to grow. Student enrollment for the 1956-57 session was 604, an increase of 
198 over the previous year. To keep pace with the tremendous increase of theological 
students, four faculty additions have been made this year to bring the total to 29. The 
projected physical needs until i960 include apartments for married students, a Child 
Care Center, major additions to the library, and considerable ground improvements. 
Within the past year a modern cafeteria has been completed, and renovations of and 
additions to the library as well as four other buildings have begun. The operating budg- 
et for 1956-57 was $431,328.00 whereas the proposed 1957-58 budget is $562,988.00

The imperative needs of Southeastern Seminary are as follows: 

1. $30,000 to $40,000 for constructing and equipping the Child Care Center. 

2. An endowment of a sufficient sum to permit greater capital outlay than that provided 
by the Southern Baptist Convention. 

3. An increasing amount of money to provide sufficient student aid in work grants and 
loan funds to ease the financial burdens of the many who are seeking theological 
training at Southeastern.

REPORT OF SUNDAY SCHOOL 

The Reverend John A. Moore, former pastor of the Park View Church, was super- 
intendent of our Sunday School work at the begining of this associational year, and 
he immediately started to enlarge the corps of Sunday School workers in preparation 
for the Group Schools held January 28-February 1. These were the first Sunday 
School group schools ever held in Yates Association. Schools were held in Grey Stone, 
Braggtown, Durham Memorial, Bethesda, Yates and Bells with a total enrollment of 
875 and awards earned — 547. 



Yates Baptist Association 



51 



Three other conference meeting's were held in February, April and July. When the 
Reverend Mr. Moore left shortly after the April meeting- to become the missionary of 
South Roanoke Association, Mr. V. A. Shore, Jr., Superintendent of Training, took over 
temporarily. 

Forty-two out of the 43 churches earned 1605 awards during the year as follows: 
Alston Avenue 2, Angier Avenue 61, Bells, 19, Berea 4, Bethesda 83, Braggtown 40, 
Calvary 13, Cedar Fork 6, Chapel Hill 7, Cheek Heights 82, Durham Memorial 68, 
Ebenezer 13, Edgemont 39, Ephesus 6, Faith 20, First 15, Gorman 122, Grace 58, 
Grey Stone 114, Guess Road 24, Holloway Street 99, Immanuel 2, Lakewood 57, Lowe's 
Grove 8, Lystra 2. 

Mt. Carmel 72, Mt. Gilead 24, Mt. Hermon 34, Mt. Moriah 14, Mt. Pisgah 40, 
Olive Branch 6, Olive Chapel 29, Park View 44, Plainview 5, Pleasant Hill 6, Red 
Mountain 1, Ridgecrest 15, Roberson Grove o, Rose of Sharon 14, Temple 140, Watts 
Street 1, Westwood 74, Yates 122. 

In this year, already begun, we shall have our regular quarterly conference meetings 
plus two Group Schools, one on January 27, 28, 30, 31 to help the workers holding 
Sunday School positions this year, and one on September 22, 23, 2s, 26 for those to 
take office on October 1. Our Associational Sunday School officers decided to ex- 
periment in holding these Schools on Preparation Week in September with Wednesday 
night open for the churches to discuss their own peculiar plans. This accounts for 
two Group Schools in the same associational year. 

Our associational organization is greatly enlarged this year with nearly 50 people 
enlisted. Our Group Schools will be held in seven churches instead of 6. We hope that 
at least 36 of our churches will observe January Bible Study Week, January 7-1 1, and 
that all 43 of our churches will have Vacation Bible Schools next summer. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Edwin B. Clements, Sunday School Superintendent

There were 40 churches out of the 43 churches in our association which had a Vaca- 
tion Bible School the past summer. Three Mission Schools were held with much success. 
A total enrollment of 6,212 was reached this year, in comparison with a total enroll- 
ment of 5,996 last year (1956). This gain is heightened when one realizes we had 
three less schools this year than last year.

A word of appreciation is due the ladies who worked in our very successful Bible 
School in Few Gardens this year. Mrs. Ned J. Smith, as principal, led a very able 
faculty in doing a splendid job with those boys and girls.

REPORT OF ASSEMBLY GROUNDS COMMITTEE 

On April 17, 1956 at an associational meeting at the Park View Church "it was 
announced that the property (55 acres on Wake Forest highway) had been purchased 
and a $2,000 loan acquired to complete the transaction." One year later, on April 
11, 1957, the note was paid in full. 

At our last annual associational meeting, one year ago, we decided to provide 
"minimum facilities for the immediate, though limited, use of the property." Since 
then the dam has been widened greatly to meet specifications and the lake stocked 
with bream. A circular road around the grounds has been completed and rocked, the 
parking lot enlarged, and a larger area has been cleared on the pinnacle for the 
main buildings eventually. In addition, an open shelter measuring 20 ft. x 60 ft. has 
been built, trash cans placed, the power line extended and lights installed. Finally, a 
well has been drilled and temporary dry toilets will be erected in a few days. 

We reaffirm last year's recommendations as follows: 

1 . That a topographical map be made as quickly as funds are available, to assure 
the proper location of buildings, sewage, and other facilities 5 

2. That all buildings erected be the property of the association 5 

3. That the type of construction be of a permanent nature ; 

4. That we keep in mind facilities for a year-round use rather than just during the 
summer months; 

5. That the facilities be available for associational programs first and churches 
second on the "first come, first served" basis, with reservations through the associational 
office. 

Respectfully submitted, 

O. A. Johnson, Chairman 
O. B. Nichols, Vice-Chairman 

REPORT ON ROYAL AMBASSADOR 

The Royal Ambassador Program is finally coming to life in our Association. Laymen 
in the individual churches are more and more accepting the challenge of this program 

We attempted a summer program of baseball for the first time this year, and it 
proved to be a successful undertaking. Dallas Branch, James Johnson, and Dempsey 
Oates did wonderful jobs of leading in this phase of activities. Two leagues were 
maintained during the summer. Churches who entered teams were; Grace, Lakewood, 
Bells, Cedar Fork, Yates, Holloway Street, and Westwood. Winners for the regular 
season were Yates — Juniors, and Grace — Intermediates. Winners for the play-offs were 
Cedar Fork — Intermediates, and Yates — Juniors. Sportsmanship trophies were given 
to Westwood — Juniors, and Cedar Fork aand Grace who were tied in the Intermediate 
League. 

In the spring we held an association conclave at Yates Church. The program 
consisted of supper, games, and contests, a talent show and movies. Marvin Pipkins 
of Lakewood Church was elected Associational Ambassador-in-Chief. 

We are confident of the continued success of the Royal Ambassador program. 



54 



Ninth Annual Session 



However, the success depends on the active support of the organizations by the laymen 
of the churches of our Association. 



A little over two years ago Moderator Bob Holleman appointed a special Associa- 
tion Committee on Juvenile Delinquency. Members of this committee included L. C. 
Goodwin Dr. D. R. Perry, Rev. Benjamin R. Bruner, E. L. Phillips, Mrs. W. C. Lyon, 
R. E. Freeman and Chris C. Hamlet with L. C. Goodwin serving as chairman. Dur- 
ing the past year the name of the committee has been changed to the Committee on 
Juvenile Program and R. E. Freeman has been replaced by Mrs. T. S. Mize with 
Chris C. Hamlet serving as chairman. 

Meeting monthly the Committee first tried to determine the nature and extent of 
the problem of juvenile delinquency in our community. Records of the Juvenile 
Court of Durham County were studied in an effort to find out where, when, how and 
why delinquency was occurring. 

From this beginning the Committee progressed to a study of methods to combat 
juvenile delinquency, actual and potential, as it may exist in our community. At this 
point we considered carefully a program suggested by the Home Mission Board of the 
Southern Baptist Convention. This program made clear the need for activities de- 
signed to prevent delinquency as well as those aimed at helping boys and girls in trouble 
and already labeled delinquent. 

As our work continued we saw the need to make available to our churches and to 
interested people in them information about the social resources and agencies that 
exist in the community. Our interest in this matter, we believe, provided the stimulus 
which led the Durham Social Planning Council to bring up to date and to release the 
first Directory of Durham Social Resources published in several years. 

Finally last fall and winter the outline of a program began to take shape and 
on January 22, 1957 at Angier Avenue Church an initial presentation was made. 
Through a visual presentation in the form of two motion pictures and through a panel 
discussion an attempt was made to show how delinquency occurs and how the church, 
working through and with the home, the school and other community agencies, can 
help to prevent and to handle this problem. 

Although much work has been done, the Committee is not yet ready to present a 
specific program to the Association. It is already abundantly clear, however, that those 
of us who are parents of boys and girls, or who work with boys and girls in our church 
organizations or in other organizations, must develop a deep and real concern that 
will lead us to want to know more about our boys and girls and about their desires 
and ambitions — a concern that will show them that we are genuinely interested in them 
and really care. If we will do this, our church organizations and their ministry to our 
young people will be strengthened and we will also know when to make use of re- 
sources outside the church to enlarge its program for young people. 



Respectfully submitted, 

Ted Stdne, R.A. Counsellor

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD 

The highlights of the past year for the Associational Brotherhood have been the 
quarterly meetings. I am not complaining, but on every occasion we have encountered 
some conflict or difficulty. In spite of this, however, we feel that our efforts have 
been justified. 

On January 15, we held our clinic at Bethesda Church. With the assistance of Mr. 
Horace Easom and several of our local laymen we planned a clinic for all of the 
Brotherhood officers and were expecting a good response. The weatherman was against 
us, and obliged us with a good coat of ice and sleet. We had around 4S-50 who 
braved the weather anyway. In order to supplement we conducted a two-night clinic at 
Grace Church, on April 4 and the response was good. 

On April 16 at Cheek Heights we held our next regular meeting with the Grace 
Brotherhood in charge of the program. Under the direction of Mr. J. Cleo Faucette 
a very challenging and inspirational program on Missions was presented. Our conflict 
at this meeting was a number of revivals and attendance was low. 

Our next regular meeting was held at Cedar Fork on July 16. This was our best 
attended meeting for the year in spite of the disagreeable weatherman. This was our 
Annual Man-Boy wiener roast, and we had scheduled this meeting for the Assembly 
Grounds. We wanted to show off the grounds to the men in the Association. The 
Assembly Grounds Committee had worked hard to ready the shelter for this meeting and 
had all in readiness, but alas, at 4:30 it started to rain and everything had to be moved 
to Cedar Fork. The weather was good over there, and so were the appetites ; 1,200 
hot dogs and 750 Pepsi's were consumed. Dr. Morris L. Husted presented a program 
that the men and boys liked and Rev. Ted Stone and some of his R.A.'s presented an R.A. 
program. Our attendance was in excess of 500. We had planned to present an attendance 
trophy at this meeting, but due to an error we could not determine the winner. 

On October 1 5 at Park View we conducted our Associational Clinic "on our own." 
At this meeting we had to compete with the flu epidemic, and our attendance was low; 
however, the clinic was successful we feel. We had no assistance from the state office 
for this clinic, feeling that our own men were capable of leading — and from the 
comments we heard the local men were capable. Our special thanks to J. Cleo Faucette, 
George Worthington, Dallas Branch, A. Leonard Wilson, Gene Goodson, Rev. William 
Poole, Rev. Herbert Baker for their fine support and leadership in making this, our 
first clinic a successful one. Our Brotherhood Trophy was awarded at this meeing, and 
Rose of Sharon had the honor of being the first church to receive it. The name of the 
church and the date have been inscribed. 

On October 17 at Grace Church we had a Workshop for Teachers of our coming 
missions study. This is something new for our men, and we are optimistic about it. 
The ladies of our W.M.U. have been studying missions all along, and we feel the men 
need missions study too, so we are asking all our men to promote and support missions 
study in their churches. We hope to make it a family missions study, men teaching 
Junior boys through Adult men, and of course the W.M.U. teaching the Sunbeams and 
Junior girls through Adult women. We want to say thanks to the fine leadership of 
Dr. John Bunn, Rev. Jack Wilder, Rev. Hubert Baker and Rev. William Cole for 
teaching the male teachers in this workshop. 

I am not discouraged over the results of our year's effort in the Brotherhood, but 
I feel that we can do much more in the coming year. We are yet young and are 



56 



Ninth Annual Session 



still having growing- pains, but with the prayers and support of our laymen and pastors 
we look to the future, aware of the challenge, the challenge of the unused manpower 
in our churches that can be utilized for Christ. More and more of our churches are 
realizing their unused manpower, and new Brotherhoods ar<e being organized. The 
Associational Brotherhood is anxious to assist any church in any way possible in 
Brotherhood work. Do not hesitate to call on us if we can be of help. Our most 
piessing need at the present is R.A. leadership. We have plans for a monthy R.A. 
Counsellors meeting and hope to have it set up in the very near future. We would 
like to urge all churches to support and promote the R.A. work and have your R.A. 
leaders attend these monthly meetings. 

I trust that the efforts of the year have borne fruit, and I am confident that the 
coming year will be more fruitful. I appreciate the splendid support and cooperation of 
the members of the Executive Committee, and with them pledge to do all that I can 
to make our Associational Brotherhood and your local Brotherhood a better one. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Roy M. Watson, President 

REPORT OF THE YATES ASSOCIATIONAL BOARD 

The Associational Board composed of the officers of the association, the heads of the 
four organizations, the chairmen of all standing committees, the Superintendent of 
Missions, and the pastor and two laymen from each cooperating church, has met 
regularly each month and kept the many activities of the association operating in an 
efficient manner. 

The Associational Board has kept minutes of all its actions which are on file and in 
care of the Clerk. It has heard regular reports from all organizations and committees. 
It has kept in touch with the various aspects of the work. It has been a means of carry- 
ing important information to the several churches. And it has set forth plans which 
have helped the work in the churches. 

During the year, the Executive Committee of the Associational Board has met 
twice to work out details for the last-week-in-the-month studies which have meant so 
much to the educational program of the association and the churches. 

Aside from the work of the several committees which will make their own reports 
to the Association at this session, attention should be called to the most important 
action of the year. Upon the recommendation of the Extension Committee, negotiations 
and a purchase was made of a suitable lot for an additional church in the Chapel Hill 
area. Mr. W. E. Stanley and the members of the Extension Committee are to be com- 
mended for their fine work respecting this new venture. 

The Moderator appreciates the fine cooperation of the committees and other mem- 
bers of the Associational Board and invites the members of the Association to listen 
carefully to the reports of all committees, most of which have already received the 
approval of the Associational Board. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Charles A. Maddry, Moderator 

REPORT OF CHURCH EXTENSION COMMITTEE 

Our Committee, after several changes in personnel, was reorganized and held four 
meetings. Although we have discussed various sites in our associational territory as 



Yates Baptist Association 



57 



possible new preaching points, most of our effort has been concentrated on the investi- 
gation of the property north of Glen Lennox, Chapel Hill. 

Finally at a call meeting at Temple Church the Associational Board voted unan- 
imously to purchase the 3^2 acres in question for $7,000, paying $1,000 ($500 from 
State Missions, $500 from our budget) as a down payment with the balance to be 
financed at 5% and paid within five years. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. E. Stanley, Church Extension Committee Chairman 

REPORT OF ORDINATION COMMITTEE 

In our report last year, the Ordination Committee made comment of the fact that it 
had not been a very busy year. If we were superstitious, we would have to say such a 
comment was a mistake. This year has been an exceedingly busy one. 

At the beginning of this Associational year, we had examined C. E. Ange at the 
request of Alston Avenue Church, who had formerly been a Freewill Baptist minister. 
The ordination committee worked many hours in cooperation with Mr. Ange and we 
approved the recommendation to Alston Avenue, the church which had called him as 
pastor, for his ordination. 

At the request of Bethesda Church, we examinied and approved for ordination 
Robert Travis. At the request of Holloway Street Church, we examined and approved 
for ordination George Hill and Robert Seagroves. At the request of First Church, we ex- 
amined and approved for ordination Thomas Hogan. At the request of Angier 
Avenue Church, we examined and approved for ordination Fred Reid, William Pickett, 
and Gray Rogers. 

x^ll of these brethren have been ordained by the churches, requesting ordination 
except two. Fred Reid was ordained by his home church, Northside Baptist in Rich- 
mond, Virginia. He was pastor of a mission of Angier Avenue Baptist Church while 
studying at Southeastern Seminary. The ordination of Gray Rogers has not taken place 
yet, but will doubtless do so in the near future. 

On January 1, when the Reverend James Pernell left our association to go the Win- 
ston-Salem, Dr. John Bunn was appointed to succeed him. 

In the light of the proximity of Southeastern Seminary, it appears that ordination 
committees in the future will be busy. More than half of the men examined for ordina- 
tion were students in that seminary. We found our work both time consuming and 
challenging.

REPORT OF THE ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONARY 

Nearly four years have passed since we came to Durham as your missionaries. 
We think our Lord for His leading and continual watchcare. 

During the past year several events stand out above the others, (1) the Sunday 
School Group Schools in January, (2) the paying of the note on the 55 acres on 
Wake Forest highway being developed for an Assembly Grounds, (3) the buying of the 
3/^ acres of land north of Glen Lennox, Chapel Hill eventually for a new church, 



58 



Ninth Annual Session 



(4) the three nights of Fellowship for Deacons in February, and (4) the three nights 
in June studying the Southern Baptist Forward Program of Church Finance under 
the leadership of our Moderator, the Rev. Charles A. Maddry. 

The development of the Assembly Grounds has taken a lot of hard work on the part 
of a few people, O. A. Johnson and O. B. Nichols in particular. Only heaven knows 
how many precious young people will experience the hand of God out there under the stars 
in future years. 

The increased interest in and emphasis upon the training of church members has 
been very encouraging. The awards earned in both Training Union and Sundav School 
broke all previous records. Several individual churches have set up long-range training 
programs. 

An emphasis upon a better informed associational leadership in all phases of our 
work has been a necessary first step in order to inspire the confidence of the workers in 
our churches. To that end the leaders of our organizations are urging their workers 
to read, study, attend conferences, and become "experts" in their fields. 

More and more associations in North Carolina are adopting our Certificate of 
Merit idea. Churches earning Certificates with blue ribbons during the year are: 
Bethesda, Braggtown, Cheek Heights, Durham Memorial, Edgemont, First, Grace, 
Grey Stone, Guess Road, Holloway Street, Lystra, Mt. Carmel, Mt. Pisgah, Olive 
Chapel, Temple, Westwood, Yates. 

Churches earning Certificates w r ith red ribbons during the year are: Angier Avenue, 
Bells, Berea, Calvary, Cedar Fork, Ephesus, Gorman, Lakewood, Mt. Hermon, Park 
View, Ridgecrest, Watts Street. 

During the past year everyone of our 43 churches had had part in the financial 
support of our association, everyone has had a Biblical Recorder Club at some time, 
everyone has contributed through the Cooperative Program. Every church has qualified 
for at least one Training Union study course award, and all but one church have quali- 
fied for at least one Sunday School study course award. No church in our association 
shares its pastor with another church. 

What is our greatest need in Yates Association? Would you say more churches, 
more money, more Brotherhoods, more leaders, more or less meetings, etc.? All of 
these are extremely important, but not one of them represents our greatest need. 

Our greatest need is more people informed in what we are trying to do. What we 
are not up on we are either down on or indifferent about! Our association is attempt- 
ing as big an educational program as you will find in North Carolina and yet most 
of our people do not know it. 

I trust I shall always be known as the "Pastor's friend," and yet, brethren, I must 
say that where you find a pastor with a glowing enthusiasm for the work of the Lord 
in the local district association you will also normally find a congregation sharing that 
enthusiasm. A church will be blessed by associational activities in proportion to its 
contribution and participation. A church that gives little to assocational missions 
will also give little to other missions causes 5 a church that gives liberally to associa- 
tional missions will also give liberally to other missions causes. Associational Missions 
fosters and promotes Missions around the world. 

We hope that an increased mailing list for the bulletin, a weekly half-hour radio 
program, the increased use of the Assembly Grounds, more and more vital training 
opportunities, and the first annual Week of Prayer for Associational Missions will give

our people a larger vision of Jerusalem as well as Judea, Samaria, and the uttermost 
parts.

FOREIGN MISSION HIGHLIGHTS 

At a ground-breaking ceremony in April of this year for the new home of our 112- 
year-old Foreign Mission Board, dedication was made anew to its purpose of serving as 
a channel through which a world-wide ministry of preaching, teaching and healing 
might be felt. The Board's first established home was for 25 years in the basement 
of the old First Baptist Church of Richmond. We rejoice in the construction of this 
building for it will make possible the strengthening of the administration of the Board 
and the improvement of every area of its work. Our Foreign Mission Board, the 
means through which we express our love and compassion for a lost world, has had an 



Yates Baptist Association 



61 



eventful history at home and abroad, weathering- wars and rumors of wars, time of 
debt and times of prosperity, times of mission apathy and times of mission concern. 
Our home office staff has grown to 80. Our staff of missionaries serving- in 38 
countries and territories has reached 1,165. Those attending- the Foreign Mission 
conference had the privilege of witnessing an appointment service at Ridgecrest this 
summer when 16 new missionaries were appointed. Our minimum objective to mark 
our 150th anniversary in 1964 is 1,750 missionaries. 

Of all funds expended by the Foreign Mission Board last year, 91.88% was used 
on foreign fields. There was a noticeable increase in the Lottie Moon Christmas offerings 
with North Carolina ranking second to Texas in contributions to the Board's total 
income. Advance in new areas continues as work is begun in Gaza, Egypt, East Pak- 
istan, Kenya and Tanganyika. To the time honored methods of spreading the gospel, 
such diversified means as religious education, music, agriculture, medical technical 
work, pharmacy etc., are gradually being added. While the need is ever great for all 
types of personnel, the critical need of the hour is for missionary nurses. Maintenance 
of an adequiate staff in the mission hospitals is being severely jeopardized and expansion 
curtailed because of the shortage of nurses. A minimum of 25 is needed immediately. 

There were requests for more than three million dollars on the desks of the secre- 
taries throughout last year that could not be met. Two-thirds of the earth's peoples 
still do not have enough to eat and therefore life expectancy for many is onlv a span 
of 30 years. 

1 95 8 has been designated as a Year of Prayer for World Evangelization. Let us 
accept the challenge of our Executive Secretary as he pleads with us to pray that the 
Lord will call some of its finest young people to serve on foreign mission fields. Sup- 
pose one from each of the 30,834 cooperating Southern Baptist Churches responded, 
what impact could be felt by the 2,675,000,000 unevangelized peoples of our world. 
May we, therefore, through more informed church members, mission-minded homes and 
prayerful concern, make past achievements only a prelude to continued advance of 
Southern Baptists in missions to the end that with increased personnel and financial 
support we will be preaching the gospel unto all the world. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Carl Bishop 

REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS 

Baptist' churches recognize no geographical or ethical frontiers in their world 
mission program, but for the effective carrying out of the great commission they have 
found it wise to work through a program of State Missions, Home Missions and Foreign 
Missions. These three areas of missions effort are interdependent, complementary, and 
of equal importance. We cannot neglect one area of mission work without harmful 
consequences to the other two, and we ought to be equally concerned for the welfare 
of our State Mission program as we are for the Home and Foreign Mission programs of 
our Southern Baptist Convention. 

Our State Mission work in North Carolina, through twenty-two separate ministries, 
is designed to help all of our churches carry out the three-fold obligation enjoined 
in Christ's world mission manifesto: evangelism, education and enlistment in discipleship. 

With sixty-two percent of our population above eight years of age unsaved, we 
have in North Carolina a vast and ripe field for evangelism. To help us harvest this 



62 



Ninth Annual Session 



o-reat field of lost souls our State Mission program is constantly alerting our pastors 
and churches to the need for evangelism in every church. Beyond this, through special 
evangelistic conferences and the promotion of simultaneous campaigns, the Department 
of Evangelism of our Baptist State Convention seeks to help^us employ the best methods 
in reaching lost souls for Christ. 

The continuing expansion of our cities each year leads to the growth of new resi- 
dential areas, each area a strategic missionary opportunity for our Baptist churches. 
From State Mission funds we seek to help in the purchase of lot for the establishment 
of new churches in these growing areas, churches that will become focal points for 
additional evangelism. The sound policy of evangelism sponsored by our State Missions 
program has resulted in an average of eight thousand baptisms each year in North 
Carolina since the organization of the Department of Evangelism. 

Last year in North Carolina we were second only to Texas in the total number 
of baptisms reported by the states, that are a part of our Southern Baptist fellowship. 
But in the ratio of baptisms to membership we were near the bottom among the states 
represented in the Southern Convention. It took 25.7 Baptists in North Carolina to 
reach one new person for Christ last year, and this is an index to the alarming way 
in which we are growing in quantity without a corresponding growth in quality. As 
a further example of how our quantity outstrips our quality I cite the results of a 
study of our one hundred leading churches last year. "These churches, or about three 
percent of all Baptist churches, gave twenty percent of all the money given by all of the 
, zzc churches for all purposes-local, current, new buildings and all missions. They 
gave forty-three and a half percent of all money given through the Cooperative 
Program They gave thirty-three and two-thirds per cent of all money given for 
missions, both through the Cooperative Program and designations.'' Obviously, there 
is a *reat need for education and enlistment among the Baptists of North Carolina. 

State Missions is undertaking to help us in this education and enlistment program 
through many of its varied activities. Our Sunday School, Training Union, Brother- 
hood, Music, Church Planning, Student Departments, and other State Mission agencies 
are striving to help us become a better brand of Baptists. 

The success of our State Missions program will depend on the willingness of all 
our churches to back the total program through our gifts to the Cooperative Program 
and special offerings for State Missions. In dollars and cents our minimum needs for 
State Missions this year will involve an expenditure of $540,000. Our State Convention 
hopes that $300,000 of this amount will be made available through the Cooperative 
Program, but for at least $200,000 we will have to depend on the State Missions offerings 
through the W.M.U. and our Sunday Schools. 

What can you as an individual church member do about this matter? The best an- 
swer is to sign a tither's commitment card indicating that you are going to keep faith 
with God in the matter of minimum stewardship, for when more of us accept Gods 
way of financing His work there will be more than enough in His treasury to meet the 
anticipated needs in State Missions and all other mission enterprises. Why not join 
others throughout the churches of North Carolina in this effort and specify that a 
part of the increase in the local church treasuries that will result from your tithe 

will be designated for State Missions? _

REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

The Home Mission Board reports continued growth and achievements during the 
year 1957. By the close of 1956 the Board reports an increase of 81 missionaries over 
the previous year. The number of professions of faith over the previous year was 
1,983. The Home Mission Board joins along with other Southwide agencies and state 
conventions in the promotion of World Mission Year. The Board is now in the third 
of its Four- Year Conquest for Christ. The first year was given to an emphasis on 
evangelism, the second to an emphasis on Church Extension, and this year was given 
to an emphasis on a ministry among the minorities and underprivileged. In 1958, 
which is the last year of the crusade, the emphasis will be given to a ministry in City 
Missions and in Rural Missions. 

The Board is making plans to join enthusiastically and whole-heartedly in the sup- 
port and promotion of the Third Jubliee Program which will begin in 1959 and cul- 
minate in 1964. 

Your Home Missions Board seeks to carry out its work through ten departments. 
Through Evangelism it works with local church, state and southwide groups to help and 
keep vital the spirit of soul-winning. Through Church Extension, it is seeking to aid 
in the establishing of 30,000 additional churches and missions stations by 1964. Through 
Church Loans Department they are working to make available loan funds to help meet 
this increased growth. It is the aim of the personnel serving the minority groups to 
have 1,050 missionaries serving these groups by 1964. The City Missions Department 
is seeking to add six new cities annually to those participating in the City Missions 
Program, thus reaching a total of ninety cities by 1964. The Rural Church Program 
along with the Ministry to Pioneer Areas are moving along with similar goals. Our 
workers among special groups anticipate that the Board will have 58 workers among 
this group by 1964. The Board carries on a large program of Missionary Education 
and Publicity. As for the Personnel and Financial side of the mission report, may we 
say that it is anticipated that the Board will have a minimum of 2,000 missionaries on 
the field by 1964 and will be appointing 400 missionaries annually by that date. To 
do this the Convention should make available to the Board a minimum of $1 per capita 
from the total membership of the churches in the Convention. 

With such a great work to do, and with such a great people as Baptists to do it, 
Home Mission work will move forward.

REPORT ON THE WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

Since the time of Christ women have assumed a large place in the promotion of 
the Kingdom of God. Even during the earthly life of Christ a company of women 
followed Him and ministered unto Him. Women were among the last to leave the 
cross and the first to make their way through the mist of the early morn to the tomb. 

This is no less true today for the Yates Woman's Missionary Union as they have 
promoted the cause of missions during World Missions Year. They have given them- 
selves in a renewed dedication of material resources, time and talents. Only time 
will tell of the fruits of the efforts made during this year 1955-57. 

We have 42 Woman's Missionary Societies with a membership of 2,768 and 1,036 
of them subscribing to Royal Service. Seventeen churches have full-graded W.M.U.'s. 
This has been a year of many changes and marks the end of the transition period of 
Royal Ambassadors from W.M.U. sponsorship to the Brotherhood. The Aims for Ad- 
vancement have taken the place of the old Standard of Excellence. Directors of 
Y.W.A., G.A., and Sunbeam have taken the place of the Youth Leader. 

The Ninth Annual Woman's Missionary Union meeting was held at Cedar Fork 
Baptist Church, March 28, with 254 in attendance. Miss Miriam Robinson, Execu- 
tive Secretary of North Carolina W.M.U., and Mrs. Hubert Middleton, Missionary to 
Santiago, Chile, were our guest speakers. A spirit of earnestness and fellowship was 
evident throughout the meeting. 

Four Associational Leadership Conferences were held in October 1956 with over 400 
in attendance. The Raleigh Regional Leadership Conference was held at the Temple 
Baptist Church, September, 3-4, 1957, with over 600 registered, and 211 of there were 
from Yates Association. Our state leaders led the conferences and the inspirational 
message was brought by Miss Edith Vaughn, Missionary from Brazil.

Mrs. Dennis Hockaday, Stewardship Chairman, reports, "Woman's Missionary Union 
continues to emphasize the priciples of stewardship. This year 997 of our women in 
Yates Association have declared their love for Christ by being tithers of their material 
possessions. Contributions through the Cooperative Program have helped 2,473 of our 
women to minister around the world in the name of Christ. W.M.U. seeks to promote 
among the women and the young people the understanding and practice of faithful 
stewardship. A faithful steward recognizes that God owns the life as well as the pos- 
sessions. The total offering as reported for Foreign, Home, State and Heck Jones for 
W.M.S. totaled $21,013.59. and for Young People's organizations totaled $1,579.05, 
making a grand total of $22,592.64. 

Mrs. David Garrett states, "There has been a great improvement in interest at- 
tendance of mission study this year. The two institutions, Foreign Missions and Home 
Missions, were well attended. Our churches had a mission study each quarter, and each 
church had at least one book taught; most of them having three books." 

Our Prayer Chairman, Mrs. H. T. Lyon, writes "The most outstanding item of 
work is the number of the W.M.U.'s reporting with the organization of one new 
Intercessory Prayer League and the great need this is meeting. These prayer leagues 
present new joys and opportunities to our shut-ins. We have six Intercessory Prayer 
Leagues." 

Mrs. John Rudisill, Chairman of Community Missions, reports, "The heart and pur- 
pose of Community Missions is soul-winning. Women in 18 W.M.S.'s reported definite 
soul-winning efforts. We have tried to reach people for the Master through many deeds 
of kindness in our community. One lady student from India was helped financially to 
complete her work at Duke University. With the assistance of the Brotherhood, three 
truck loads of food and clothing were sent to the Indian Orphanage at Pembroke." 

The Y.W.A. Director, Mrs. Bessie Hilliard, says, "On the Go! With Y.W.A.! Yes, 
on this Golden Anniversary Year 1907-195 7, we, the Y.W.A. 's of Yates Association, 
have been on the go. It took the first quarter to get going with our Aims for 
Advancement. Many churches were represented at the State House Party held in 
Greensboro in February. Banquets and community missions projects were going on dur- 
ing Anniversary Focus Week. The Yates Y.W.A. Council was organized in August of 
this year." 

Associational Youth Night was planned and promoted by Miss Violet Overton, Yates 
Youth Leader, and was one of the highlights of the year for our young people. Over 
600 witnessed a beautiful Coronation Service at Holloway Street Church for the 
Bethesda Girl's Auxiliary, with four receiving Queens Crowns and 17 others advancing

Carolina. 

Membership 

Article z. The Association in session shall be composed of the duly elected mes-

Article 3. Each church shall be represented at the annual meeting of the As- 
sociation and at any special meeting during the year by messengers who shall be duly 
certified, and in the following ratio: 

(1) Three for the first hundred members or fraction thereof and one for each 
additional hundred or fraction thereof, provided that the total number of mes- 
sengers shall not exceed ten. 

(2) All pastors of churches of the Association shall be recognized as messengers, 
in addition to those specified above. 

Article 4. Churches seeking to seat messengers in the Association shall apply to the 
Church Extension Committee prior to the annual meeting of the Association, giving 
evidence of their faith and order, and their agreement to be received under the watch- 
care of the Association for a period of one year. It is understood that during this period 
such churches will be accorded all of the services of the Association and its privileges 
with the exception of the right to seat voting messengers. Upon recommendation of the 
committee and the approval of the Association by a two-thirds majority of the members 
present and voting, the church or churches shall be received under the watch-care of 
the Association. At the conclusion of the period of watch-care the church or churches 
shall be authorized to seat duly elected messengers with voting privileges. 

Article 5. The Association shall have power, upon giving notice of nine months 
and by two-thirds majority vote of messengers present and voting, to withdraw fellow- 
ship from any church that shall willfully depart from orthodox principles of the 
Christian religion as taught in the Bible and a& believed by Baptists, or that fails to 
represent itself either by messenger or by letter at the annual session of the Association 
without sufficient reason, or that fails to support causes fostered by the denomination 
at large and of this Association in particular, or that ceases to be missionary in practice. 

Article 6. Any church may decline to send messengers to the Association at its 
pleasure. Whenever this constitutes a withdrawal of fellowship on the part of the 
church, the Association shall not as a body, or through a representative or representa- 
tives, seek to restrain by coercion or law the withdrawal action of the church.

HISTORY OF PLEASANT HILL BAPTIST CHURCH 

Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, which is located some six miles east of Pittsboro, 
N. C, in New Hope Township, Chatham County, was organized in 1871 with eight 
charter members. They were Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Johnson, Mr. Kelly Mitchell, Rev. 
and Mrs. George Moon, Mrs. Texana Poe, and Mr. and Mrs. Jim Thomas. 

The land for the new church was donated by Rev. George Moon and lumber for 
the building was made from trees on the site. The rafters were made of pine poles used 
whole, having the bark removed. The original building still stands, but new rooms 
have been added and much renovation has been done. 

The first services of worship were conducted by Rev. Moon, with only preaching 
services being held for the first several years. Finally these services were discontinued 
late in the iSoo's, and the building was unused for several years. Sometime between 
1905 and 1909 Mr. J. C. B. Mitchell started a movement to renew interest in the 
Church and succeeded in getting a small group to meet on Sunday mornings for just 
Sunday School. The Rev. W. B. Lineberry, pastor of Mt. Gilead, agreed to come on 
Sunday afternoons and preach for the people. 

The following have served as pastors of the Church: G. P. Moore, Monroe Holle- 
man, J. N. Booth, W. B. Lineberry, John Hackney, W. B. Woff, G. C. Philips, C. H. 
Norris, R. R. Gordon, Stanley Murphy, O. Davis Poe, R. E. Muse, and the present pas- 
tor, Thomas E. Hartis. Special mention should be made of Rev. R. R. Gordon who 
faithfully served this congregation for twenty-five years. 

Of interest is the fact that the site of the Church was at one time used as a trading 
post and saloon, and that the Church was known for a number of years as "Traders' 
Hill," before adopting its present name of Pleasant Hill. 

The church was originally a part of the Mt. Zion Association, but united with the 
Yates Association when it was organized in 1948. At present the church has an en- 
rollment of 87, a Sunday School enrollment of 60, a W.M.U. enrollment of 15, and a 
T.U. enerollment of 30. 

Respectfully submitted, 
G. Fred Lipe, Historian 

HISTORY OF ROSE OF SHARON BAPTIST CHURCH 

Rose of Sharon Baptist Church, located in Durham County, about five miles North- 
west of Durham, N. C, was organized October 4, 1879. For many years there had 
been occasional preaching at "Hopkins Grove." In June 1877 Elder C. Durham, pas- 
tor of the Durham (now the First) Baptist Church got the people about the place to- 
gether, fixed seats and began to preach once a month at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. This 
was continued until November. In April 1878, the Durham Baptist Church employed 
Elder J. H. Freeman to preach there once a month. In May a Sabbath School was 
organized by Elder C. Durham and Brother Nash Cheek, a deacon of the Durham 
Church, was made Superintendent. In August a meeting of days was held and four 
were baptized into the fellowship of the Durham Church. 



30 



Tenth Annual Session 



In December 1878, the Durham Baptist Church gave this mission station over to 
the Mission Board of the Mt. Zion Association. From this time up to the time of the 
organization of the church Elder Jesse Howell, Missionary of the Association, preached 
there once a month. Early in the spring of 1879, due to the untiring efforts of Simpson 
Browning and C. Durham, two acres of land were secured for a church building, and 
in the summer of the same year, through the efforts of Simpson Browning and R. M. 
Jones, the house of worship was built. 

A presbytery composed of Elder Jesse Howell, J. H. Freeman, R. A. Patterson, 
and C. Durham met October 4, 1879 to organize a Baptist Church (Missionary). 
Elder C. Durham was chosen moderator and Elder R. A. Patterson, Clerk. After the 
reading of the Scriptures and prayers, the presbytery examined the letters and the 
standing of those who desired to be organized into a New Testament Church and pro- 
ceeded to organize the church. After reading and adopting a declaration of faith as 
published by a committee from the Mt. Zion Association, the following members were 
declared a Scriptural Church: Simpson Browning, R. M. Jones, W. E. Martin, William 
W. Newton, Wiley S. Newton, J. N. Dunnagan, Wesley Cooke, Ellis Riley, and Sisters 
A. W. Jones, E. A. Browning, Mary J. Newton, Elizabeth A. Newton, Mary J. Newton, 
(this name appears twice in the original records as they stand, so we leave both there — 
and wonder if Mary J. Newton was one or two! — G.F.L.), Mary A. Horner, Midney 
Riley, Jeusha Cash, and Catherine Cash — 17 in all. The church then elected Elder 
Jessee Howell pastor, and Simpson Browning, R. M. Jones and William P. Newton 
deacons. The church agreed to pay Elder Howell fifty dollars to preach for them on 
the second Sunday in each month, and on Saturdays before. Then Brothers Browning 
and Newton were ordained by the presbytery to the office of deacon. Brother Jones 
was absent. By vote it was agreed that the church should be called "Rose of Sharon." 

The following men have served the church as pastor: Elder Jessee Howell, R. A. Pat- 
terson, J. D. Newton, C. C. Newton, C. A. Woodson, G. J. Dowell, W. H. Edwards, 
J. F. McDufEe (who served two separate times as pastor), O. W. Triplett, J. F. 
Crisp (who also served twice as pastor), W. E. Warren, L. M. Hobbs, T. M. Green, 
Z. B. Teel, Sr., Paul G. Hester, A. W. Icard, O. L. Riggs, Ralph Knight, L. T. 
Bridgers, Sidney Denman, H. E. Cherry, and the present pastor, Frank McGuire. The 
longest pastorate was that of Rev. Z. B. Teel, Sr., who served for a period of 9^2 
years. 

In April 1888 a Sunday School was begun with W. S. Newton as Superintendent 
and J. L. Scott, Sr., as Assistant. Of worthy mention is the service of Mr. Charlie 
Hester who, beginning in 1908, served as Sunday School Superintendent for 17 years, 
as well as that of Mr. J. L. Scott, Sr., who served for 53 years as Clerk for the church, 
beginning October 1883. In 1949, with Sidney Denman as Pastor, the church began 
to hold services of worship every Sunday morning. In 1955 the church voted to have 
a pastor to live on the field in a full-time capacity, and in March 1956 a parsonage was 
purchased, and in April, Rev. Frank McGuire became the first full-time pastor of the 
church. 

In September 1948 the church voted to withdraw from the Mt. Zion Association 
and to enter the new Yates Baptist Association. 

The W.M.U. was organized in 1928 and has a present membership of 83. The 
Brotherhood was formed in 1954, and now has an enrollment of 34, including the R.A.'s

DIGEST OF CHURCH LETTERS 

The 1957-58 Associational year in the Yates Association was one filled with varied 
activities. There were eig-ht churches which called new pastors, one church called 
a Director of Religious Education and one church called a Minister of Music, all 
which have been introduced. There were three churches that dedicated Educational 
Buildings this year, one that dedicated an organ, one that built and paid for an Educa- 
tional annex. One church has started construction of a Sanctuary while another is 
nearing completion of a Sanctuary. One church redecorated their Pastorium and 
painted Sunday School rooms while another church purchased a new Pastorium, air- 
conditioned their Sanctuary, organized a Mission and are building an Educational 
Building. 

Since I have been working with statistics for the past few weeks, I feel that I must 
bring you some vital facts from these statistical tables. This past year our churches 
have given $11,246.00 more to the Cooperative Program than they did last year which 
showed a there thousand dollar increase over the previous year. The per-capita gifts 
for this year ending were $9.87, a sliglu increase from the previous year of $9.58. We 
are all interested in the percentage of our gifts to the Cooperative Program in relation 
to our total mission gifts and our grand total expenditures. In 1957-58 we gave 56% 
of our total mission gifts or 9.3% of our total expenditures to the Cooperative Pro- 
gram. This was about .5% increase over the previous year of our total expenditures. 
The Southern Baptist Convention is asking us to increase our gifts to the Cooperative 
Program next year by 2% of our total expenditures.

BIBLICAL RECORDER AND OTHER BAPTIST LITERATURE 

The contacts, impressions and surrounding's of a person largely make up his mind, 
habits and actions. Even a worm takes on the color of the plant or leaf on which it 
feeds. Human beings take on the color and nature of what they read. Never before 
has there been so much to read. Publishers have dressed up their wares in rainbow 
colors, and used every style, trick and art of printing to make their publications look 
tempting to the eyes of young and old. Much of this popular literature is bad. It 
pours like a stream of poison from the presses of profit-hungry publishers. It loads 
down the newsstands, and clogs the mail-boxes of all who will buy and receive it. Much 
of this unclean reading matter gets into Baptist homes. This should never be, for no 
other denomination has so wide a variety of good Christian literature as Baptists have, 
to meet the spiritual interests and needs of every member of the family. 

How much sound, clean Christian literature comes into your home each week to 
lift up, inspire, and enrich the minds and hearts of your family? Is your Baptist state 
paper coming by mail into your home each week? Is your mail-box getting only 
that which is good and wholesome to read? Is your reading table a silent witness 
to your Baptist faith and practice, or is it cluttered with much that carries the seeds of 
evil on the printed page? Do you always remember that Christian literature aims to 
enlist, unify, teach and inspire people for nobler Christian service? 

When North Caroina Baptists organized themselves in 1830, Thomas Meredith, 
appointed by the body to send out a letter stating its purpose, said: "The Convention was 
organized for the purpose primarily, of giving the Gospel to North Carolina, and then 
to all the world." The Constitution of the Convention soon afterward stated that its 
main purpose was "The promotion of missions, Christian education, social service, and 
the distribution of sound Christian literature." The Biblical Recorder was founded 
in 1833, to help carry out these noble aims. For 125 years, it has borne the Baptist 
message in North Carolina. By careful planning, and with the fine cooperation of 
pastors and their people over the State, we have had a good year in general, with 
circulation approximately 61,000 and growing. 

The Recorder has three subscription plans: Single subscription is $2.50 a year. 
The Club Plan, with 4 or more subscriptions, is $2.00 a year. The Every-Family Plan 
with one subscription to each resident family or home in the church r is only $1.50 a 
year. Pastors, Recorder representatives in the churches, and others have been faithful in 
securing renewals and new subscribers, and we wish to thank them for their fine serv- 
ice. Our General Secretary, State workers, associational missionaries and others 
have given their continued interest and support in promotion of wider circulation. We 
wish to express our thanks to them. 

We sincerely urge all pastors, associational workers, Sunday School superintendents 
and officers, State workers, Training Union, Brotherhood, W.M.U. members and others 
to promote in every possible way the Every-Family Plan or at least a good-sized Re- 
corder club in every church. The Baptist paper ought to go into every Baptist home. 

The Recorder and its staff members seek to be of every possible service to North 
Carolina Baptists. Remember us in your prayers ; call on us for any service we can 
render. We want to be faithful to our task; that the Recorder may be a true and 
faithful witness every week in every Baptist home and community. We must all work

EVANGELISM COMMITTEE 

The Evangelism Committee for the year 1957-58 with the Rev. Dennis Hockaday 
as chairman initiated plans and preparations for the Yates Baptist Association Simul- 
taneous Crusade April 12-26, 1959. 

The 1958-1959 Evangelism Committee will serve as the steering committee for 
the spring simultaneous effort in evangelism. Dr. Julian S. Hopkins, Secretary of 
Evangelism for the North Carolina Baptist State Convention, will serve as Director. 
Under the leadership of Dr. Hopkins and the Steering Committee, the following pro- 
gram will be featured in our Association from January 1959 through April 1959. 

1. Four special rallies for the purposes of information, inspiration, and fellowship. 
One rally each by the Brotherhood, WMU, Youth Groups, and Musicians. 

2. Fellowship — clinic for pastors, guest speakers, and song leaders. 

3. Daily radio programs during the period of April 12-26, 1959. 

4. A Tele-evangelism series for thirteen weeks prior to the simultaneous services 
over local TV facilities. 

5. Simultaneous revivals in the churches April 12-26. 

We propose that each church in our association prayerfully consider as following 
recommendations : 

1. That each year the Yates Association elect a chairman of evangelism ; 

2. That each church of the Yates Association expend every effort to report baptisms j 

3. That fifty per-cent of the churches in the association have two revival efforts a 
year, and every church at least one revival effort each year 5 

4. That eighty per-cent of the churches in the association elect and utilize a church 
council on evangelism.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

North Carolina Baptists can well be proud of their institutions of higher education. 
Of the colleges and seminaries of the Southern Baptist Convention, two (of thirty) 
senior colleges, five (of twenty-one) junior colleges, one (of four) Bible schools, and 
one (of six) theological seminaries are located in our state. All of our junior and 
senior colleges have both state and regional accreditation, and during the past year 
Southeastern Seminary has been accepted into full membership in the American Asso- 
ciation of Theological Schools. 

In all of these denominationally-supported schools a Baptist Student Union organi- 
zation is functioning, following its major purposes of relating the life of the student 
to the churches and of helping the student toward religious maturity. In most of the 
state-supported schools, also, a Baptist Student Union program is being carried out. 
Within the confines of our own association we have two schools, the University of 
North Carolina and Duke, with Baptist Student Union programs directed by student 
secretaries under the State Student Department. These men need and merit our whole- 



Yates Baptist Association 



37 



hearted support in this work. Southeastern Seminary instituted for the first time this 
year a course in student work, entitled "Religious Work With College Students." The 
Seminary is to be commended for this interest in student work. 

This college and student work is supported by endowments, tuition and student 
fees, individual gifts, special grants, and cooperative program receipts. The need for 
tremendous new outlays for capital expansion and increased staffs cannot be over- 
emphasized. At present, according to college estimates, one out of every five Baptist 
students who go to college attends a Baptist school. Already our schools are crowded 
and in many cases understaffed. Yet the number of young people in our state is in- 
creasing every year and the percentage who go to college is also increasing. Our 
college officials have estimated that by 1965 our present enrollments will have to be 
doubled just to keep one of five Baptist students in a Baptist college. The implications 
in terms of staff and capital requirements are obvious. 

Now a task confronts us in the churches. Giving our money for the support of 
these institutions and this work is a major essential of the task. But it is not all. The 
Baptist students in our colleges come from our churches, and we have a specific re- 
sponsibility within our churches to our students. This task is three-fold : 

1. Preparation for college. Everything we do for the person in his developing 
years is a part of his preparation for life. Looking specifically at the needs of the 
college student, however, we can note several areas of importance to the church. 

a. Intellectual preparation. As the young person matures he is going to ask 
serious questions regarding the faith of his childhood. In college he will be formu- 
lating the faith by which he will live. We must encourage him, even before his 
college experience, to begin this process of self-examination and critical thought. 
Too often we are frightened by the thoughts of our youth, not realizing that the 
Spirit of God is at work within us and them even during a period of critical exami- 
nation and doubt. They are exchanging second-hand religion for first-hand religious 
faith. Let us encourage them in their intellectual explorations. 

b. V ocational preparation. Choice of a college will be dependent upon the vo- 
cational choices one has made. The church can help the young person to find his 
calling and to respond in faith even to this period of preparation as a calling from 
God. 

c. Moral preparation. The young student is going to be making moral and 
ethical decisions on his own during his college years. It is important that the 
churches help him to lay a firm foundation for the decisions he must make. 

d. Social preparation. New situations will be constantly arising, requiring a 
mature Christian personality on the part of our students. They will meet new 
people and new ideas. The social graces and the ability to get along with others 
must be cultivated throughout all the earlier years of preparation. 

2. Following the student into college. The local church has not finished with the 
student who has entered college. He must still feel himself to be an important person 
in the eyes of his home church. This may be accomplished in several ways: 

a. Through letters and mailings from the church. We must let him know what 
is going on. 

b. Through counseling. Our students are not away all the time. When they 
are at home, we can cultivate accepting attitudes so as to be able to help them with 
their problems, questions, and fears.

Tenth Annual Session 



c. Student Night at Christmas. The student department of our denomination 
helps us to promote this night of participation by and recognition of our students 
in their home churches during the Christmas holidays. 

d. Through use of their talents during the summer. The church can help 
them to recognize their increasing maturity by itself accepting the fact that they 
are ready to assume responsibilities. Evening services, the prayer meeting, the Va- 
cation Bible School, the recreation program, special training sessions: all of these 
offer opportunities for student leadership. 

e. Through use of their new ideas. One of the quickest ways to stifle creative 
thought is to reject every new idea which the student mind produces. These grow- 
ing minds can lift our own thoughts to new horizons — and perhaps we, as much 
as our students, will be helped in the process. 

3. Following them after college. As learning does not cease with the granting of a 
diploma, neither does our responsibility as churches cease with the student's moving on 
into his chosen work. Here again our task is varied. 

a. We can help them to find work suitable to their newly acquired skills 
and interests. 

b. As they move out into other communities we can follow them with our in- 
terest and our blessing. We owe it to them to help them establish themselves active- 
ly in the life of the church wherever they are. 

c. If they come back to our own communities we can give them positions of 
leadership and responsibility in accord with their knowledge and training. As 
they have been helped to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus 
Christ, so now they can help others to grow — and they can be inspired to continue the 
growth which they have begun. 

Our colleges are helping to train our future leaders. It is a co-operative task and we 
must work together at it. No more important task has ever confronted the Christian 
church.

J. Henry Coffer, Jr. 

MISSIONS 

Introductory 

The Bible indicates four areas of Christian missions, rather than the customary 
three: "Ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in 
Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth" (Acts 1:8b). This would indi- 
cate that Association Missions is foundational and always to be thought of and referred 
to along with our customary way of saying State, Home and Foreign Missions. This 
is especially true since Jesus told his followers not to depart from Jerusalem to do other 
mission work until the Holy Spirit blessed their labors there first (Acts 1:4). Associa- 
tion Missions is covered in another section. It is the purpose of this report to give the 
Highlights of the work in 1957-58 in State Missions, Home Missions, and Foregn 
Missions. 

State Missions 

This is the area of missionary endeavor roughly referred to in the above verse of 
Scriptuie as "Judea." For us, of course, this means Baptist mission work in this 
State of North Carolina. The purpose of State Missions is, in the words of the State 



Yates Baptist Association 



39 



Missions Secretary: "to reach the unsaved for Christ and teach, enlist and train the 
saved in giving, living, and serving through the churches and throughout the world." 
Of the four and one half million residents of our State, 2,100,000 over eight years old 
are affiliated with some church. Almost as many, or 2,000,000 of this age are unchurched 
and perhaps twenty-five per cent of the churched are lost. This means that about 
sixty per cent of the people in North Carolina above eight years of 1 age are lost and 
that our State is less than half Christian. Of the church-affiliated North Carolinians 
about forty-three per cent are Baptists. Perhaps sixty per cent of these Baptist Church 
members are unenlisted or are not dedicated to their profession of faith. Here is one 
of the major tasks of State Missions. In order to reach and enlist these people State 
Missions works through its departments of Sunday School, Training Union, Royal 
Ambassadors, Brotherhood, Church Development, and Music. In this year there will 
be over 2,800 Vacation Bible Schools reported and which will give $50,000 to world 
missions. Over 7,000 of our people attended one of the three Baptist Assemblies in the 
State this year. The Department of Evangelism seeks to lead and inspire pastors to 
reach the non-churched and lost in their communities. Last year only Texas Baptists 
baptised more people than those of North Carolina. State Missions also aids in the 
development of new work by helping pay pastor's salaries and by helping newly formed 
churches buy lots. About $150,000 was spent for this work this year by State Missions. 
State Missions is helping to train our pastors for better effectiveness. About 175 were 
trained at Fruitland this year besides the 500 who took refresher courses offered at 
Mars Hill and Chowan Colleges. The same type of training is being offered to the 
leadership of the Negro Baptist Churches through the Department of Interracial Co- 
operation. Work with the silent people has grown tremendously during the year, 
branching into the field of television as well as training interpreters. The Allied Church 
League also has been busy promoting a sane and sober citizenship for our State. There 
is still much to be done. State Missions will need $603,000 to carry on its fine work in 
the fiscal year. This need is urgent and basic in world missions! 

HOME MISSIONS ,,, 

The last report of the Home Mission Board showed an increase in income through 
the Cooperative Program and the Annie Armstrong Offering of over $4,000,000. In 
line with this, the missionary personnel was increased to 1,723, a gain of 91 over last 
year. These workers reported 36,464 professions of faith and the 425 Baptist Chaplains 
reported 13,534 professions. Outstanding among the new staff members added this 
year were Paul S. James, director of our work in New York City; J. V. James, director 
of work with juvenile delinquents and broken homes; W. Bertram King, working with 
Canadian Baptists; and Dr. C. C. Warren, employed jointly by the Home Mission Board 
and the Sunday School Board to promote the 30,000 Movement. The Board will pro- 
mote the Evangelistic Crusades next Spring which will cover this entire country. 
Through its Rural Church Program the Board is working in pioneer areas in 43 
States. Among the challenging goals of the Board for 1964 (Baptist Jubilee Year) 
are the following: (1) Raise the number of missionaries with minority groups from 
776 to 1,050; (2) increase total missionaries from 1,723 to 2,000; (3) increase finan- 
cial support to an average of $1 per member for all Southern Baptists. This should be 
used as a guide now for our budgeting Home Missions.

Tenth Annual Session 



FOREIGN MISSIONS 

The Foreign Mission Board could support more missionaries now than it has avail- 
able. There is a .need for additional recruits for service in spite of the fact that 
great strides have, been made recently in missionary advance. At the close of the 
last year there were more than 1,200 missionaries serving the Board in more than forty 
different countries. . This represented an increase during the past years of about seventy- 
five missionaries. . Affiliated with the missions of the Board around the world are 
some three thousand churches which reported last year nearly ten baptisms each as an 
average. The Chinese Baptist Churches in the Philippines have been organized into 
an association. A Ridgecrest-like encampment facility has been built near the seminary 
in Gwelo, Southern Rhodesia. Thirty-two educational institutions enrolling thirteen 
hundred and seventy-three students in twenty-eight countries are being maintained. 
Missions in nineteen countries operate medical centers, ten of them having hospitals 
and the others operating dispensaries or clinics. Added to the staff of the Board 
during the last year were Floyd North and Stertz in the departments of Missionary 
Education and Promotion and Missionary Personnel, respectively. Dr. George W. 
Sadler, retiring secretary, has become the Board's European representative. Circula- 
tion of The Commission has now reached 140,000. Record receipts of some $15,000,000 
were contributed to the Board during the past year. Challenging and thrilling is the re- 
port that more than two thousand young people in high schools, colleges, and seminaries, 
are now preparing themselves for foreign service. These young people stand ready to 
match our dollars with their lives! As large as this group appears, it is not enough 
to meet the need for new recruits. Baptists are beginning to move in the direction of 
living up to ther name: "Missionary Baptists!"

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

"Behold I have set before thee an open door." With the challenge of this watch- 
word for 1958 before us, the Yates Woman's Missionary Union launched into a year of 



Yates Baptist Association 



43 



opportunity. As programs were presented month by month from our magazine, Royal 
Service, the women learned to love people of other races and religions, as we came to 
know them better. Mrs. Charles Maddry of Temple Baptist Church was the writer 
of the programs and many testified to the fact that they were among the finest ever 
used. The women were particularly grateful for the varied ways suggested for pre- 
senting the programs. 

In January our Superintendent, Mrs. Robert Costner, moved to Raleigh where 
her husband assumed the duties of Associational Missionary. She had been a challenge 
and inspiration to many during the years spent here and she is greatly missed in our 
association. 

One of the special emphases for 1957-58 in the Community Missions fundamental 
was "Ministry to minority, racial and national groups." This was promoted early in 
the year when, through the efforts of the women, approximately $700.00 was given to 
Jang Hyun Lee, a Korean student at Duke, toward his tuition. He was invited to speak 
in many of the churches and in that way the women and young people came to appreciate 
him and his people more. 

Realizing that world vision is the result of mission reading and study, the members 
of our organization have been eager for information. Through the Foreign Mission 
Study workshop the teachers were taught how to teach. It is gratifying that so many 
are using teachers from their own churches. More women are having an opportunity 
to participate in discussion groups as an increased number of societies are planning for 
at least one mission study through the circles. 

Praying for missionaries on their birthdays as they are listed in the periodicals 
has enabled women and children to go into all the world. Many churches have felt 
a spiritual awakening as more of our organizations have planned Weeks of Prayer 
for Foreign, Home and State Missions, rather than, single days. 

Gifts are an outgrowth of prayer. An increased number of tithers, and contributors 
through the Cooperative Program, has enabled the cause of Christ to reach more areas 
of our world. 

100 officers and counselors took advantage of the conference at Westwood in October 
to learn more about their jobs. 2 1 1 had attended the Raleigh Regional Conference 
at Temple Church on September 3 and 4. 

Watts Street Church was host to the 10th Annual WMU meeting on April 10. At 
that meeting officers were elected and installed by Mrs. Charles Maddry. A new set 
of by-laws was presented and adopted. It was our pleasure to have as guest speakers 
for the day, Miss Margie Shumate, Missionary to China and Thailand, and Miss Sara 
Ann Hobbs, State YWA Director. The Superintendent of Missions presented a few 
slides of the work of the association. 

Youth Night on August 19 at Temple Church was in inspiration as young people 
brought "Echoes" from camps and retreats they had attended during the summer. The 
YWA and GA Directors worked hard to make the affair the success that it was. 

The YWA Council is functioning and it is hoped the coming year will have a GA 
Council started. 

The Business Woman's Federation of the association met quarterly having mission- 
aries as inspirational speakers. 

The Superintendent and Youth Directors attended the WMU Conference at Ridge- 
crest and their prayer is that the coming months will prove the wisdom of their being 
sent by the women. At Ridgecrest we were reminded that the next five years of Jubilee 



44 



Tenth Annual Session 



Advance will be an Era of Prayer, with the 1959 emphasis being- "Christian Witnessing-." 
We pray that the new year will bring more members into our organization and more 
souls into the kingdom, not just to be counted, but to have the joy that conies when we 
"Shew forth His salvation from day to day."

SUNDAY SCHOOL 

This has been a very good year for our Sunday School Department in the Yates 
Association. Several planning meetings were held during the year. We have held two 
group schools. 

Our January School was held in the following churches: Grey Stone, Braggtown^ 
Durham Memorial, Grace, Bethesda, Yates, and Bells. There were 230 awards earned 
from 30 churches that participated. 

At our meeting held after the January School we had much discussion on how to- 
improve our methods. The group decided to try a Central School in September. The 
school was held at the Grace Baptist Church. At the close of the school a questionnaire 
was given to each member to determine the weak points. We were very favorably 
impressed to learn from the questionnaire that the people thought this to be the best 
school we had ever held in the Yates Association. 

The following churches participated in the September School : Alston Avenue,. 
Angier Avenue, Berea, Bethesda, Cedar Fork, Cheek Heights, Durham Memorial, 
Edgemont, Ephesus, Faith, Gorman, Grace, Grey Stone, Guess Road, Holloway Street, 
Lakewood, Lowe's Grove, Lystra, Mt. Hermon, Mt. Pisgah, Olive Branch, Olive 
Chapel, Park View, Plainview, Red Mountain, Ridgecrest, Rose of Sharon, Temple, 
Watts Street, and Yates. 

There were approximately 350 awards earned. 

Mr. V. A. Shore has accepted the position of General Superintendent for next year.

I am sure that under the leadership of Mr. Shore our Sunday School Department will

BROTHERHOOD 

I am happy to report a much better year for the Brotherhood than we have had in 
the past. 

The Clinic at Park View Church was successful, although the attendance was less 
than we expected. It was rewarding to those who were present, and we have seen 
and heard good reports from those who took advantage of it. 

Our Ladies Night at Braggtown was well attended. Everyone enjoyed a wonder- 
ful evening of fellowship and inspiration. Dr. and Mrs. I. G. Greer were our special 
guests and Dr. Greer was the feature of the program. The Brotherhood of Braggtown 
furnished refreshments to conclude the meeting. 

For our January Meeting at Calvary, Dr. J. V. James of the Home Mission Board 
was the speaker. In conjunction with our boys' work, Dr. James spoke on "Juvenile 
Delinquency and Broken Homes." His message was very appropriate and he inspired 
-all of the men of the Brotherhood, and challenged us to meet the needs of our boys. 
At this meeting the Brotherhood Male Chorus was introduced. The chorus consisted 
of several pastors as well as laymen from our Association, and they were enthusiastically 
received. We are grateful to Mr. John Laverty for his fine leadership in the chorus. 

Probably the highlight of the year was the "Man-Boy Night" at the Assembly 
Grounds. Our attendance was in excess of 500 men and boys. The attraction was two- 
fold, and we are not sure whether it was "Bones" McKinney or the wieners, but both 
were well liked by the men and boys. "Bones" brought a wonderful message on the 
subject, "Athletics and the Christian." Brother George Worthington, our new associa- 
tional president, and his men from Yates Brotherhood prepared and served the 1,500 
or so wieners and 900 Pepsi Colas by the lakeside. We are grateful to them for their 
service. 

At this meeting, the Rose of Sharon Brotherhood won the Attendance Trophy for 
the fourth consecutive quarter. They are to be commended for their fine effort. 

I would like to express my gratitude for the wonderful privilege afforded me to 
serve as President of the Associational Brotherhood the past two years. A million 
thanks to Mr. "Workhorse" Hubert Mumford! Without his help my job would have 
been impossible. To the men who served with me on the Executive Committee, let me 
say I am grateful to each of you for a wonderful job well done. My prayer is that 
God will continue to lead and bless the men of the Brotherhood to even greater heights 
than we have yet known. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Roy M. Watson, President 

ASSEMBLY GROUNDS COMMITTEE 

The Assembly Grounds Committee has worked faithfully in trying to improve the 
Assembly Grounds on the Wake Forest Road. 

During the past year we have been able to construct an outdoor furnace, install a 
-water pump, build a pump house and construct two dry toilets on the premises. In 



Yates Baptist Association 



47 



addition to the above items, improvements have been made to the roads and driveway. 

Each and every member of the Committee has worked diligently with the limited 
funds that have been available. 

It is the recommendation of this Committee that during- the incoming year, provisions 
be made for the construction of a custodian's house. I am happy to report that we have, 
two gifts; one is framing lumber, and the other roofing, gutters, and downspouts for 
the proposed project. 

It is further recommended that the various societies of the Woman's Missionary 
Society become interested in this project and assist us in doing some much needed plant- 
ing of grass and shrubbery.

M. A. Ham, Chairman 

AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS 

At the 1957 Annual Meeting of the Association, the Audio-Visual Aids Committee 
was created and this field of work added in an official capacity to the program of the 
Association. During this year, your Committee has provided opportunities for train- 
ing for the churches. In November a two-night Audio-Visual Aids Clinic was held 
at Grace Baptist Church. The program for the first night was led by the Rev. 
J. L. Morris, Secretary of the Department of Audio-Visual Aids of the Baptist State 
Convention of N. C. It consisted of a conference on the use of Audio-Visual Aids in 
the local church and demonstrations of different types. At this meeting an extensive 
display of available Audio-Visual Aids was provided by Stone School Supply Co., Inc. 
of Raleigh. The second night's session consisted of a training course in the mechanics 
of operation of motion picture and slide-filmstrip projectors. 

A second conference was held at Yates Baptist Church. This was primarily a tech- 
nical training course in projector use and operation. 

The most significant advance in the Audio-Visual Aids field during the year was 
the production of a set of slides, complete with script, on the work of the Association 
entitled "Witnessing in Jerusalem." These slides have been used in 1 7 churches in the 
Association as well as at the Pastor's Conference, the Annual Meeting of the W.M.U. 
and in other meetings. 

At the present time the Association has a collection of about 200 slides, out of 
which the Audio-Visual Aids Committee hopes to create five or six sets of slides, each 
dealing with some phase of the Association's work such as Sunday School, Training 
Union, Assembly Grounds, etc. Each set will have a complete script and will present 
its area for the work in a program of approximately 10 to 20 minutes in length. 

Your Committee has provided some photographic help to the Superintendent of Mis- 
sions in the production of the Audio-Visual presentation of the Association's work to 
be presented at the Tuesday night session of the 1958 Annual Meeting. In addition, 
Mr. Bruce Lawson of the Hollo way Street Church has produced the taped sound tract 
for this program. 

Your Association maintains a filmstrip library in the Association Office. At the 
present time there are 78 filmstrips available for use by the churches covering almost 
every area of our cooperative work. A call to the office will reserve any of these 
filmstrips for use in your church. We hope that soon the Association will be able to 
provide the money for the purchase of a slide-filmstrip projector for the Association's 
use. We already have a Bell-Howell 16mm motion picture projector for use by the 



48 



Tenth Annual Session 



churches of the Association. Reservation for its use may be made through the Associa- 
tion Office. 

We call to the attention of the churches that our Baptist State Convention maintains 
a library of several hundred filmstrips and many motion pictures in the office of the 
Secretary of the Department of Audio-Visuals, 301 Hillsboro Street, Raleigh. Nearly 
all of these materials are available FREE to our churches and may be ordered from 
the above address. 

The outlook for 1959 is most gratifying. It now appears that we shall be able to 
provide the churches with more and better Audio-Visual Aids through the Association 
Office. This is a new field for the Association and your Committee needs the prayers 
of the people for its work. Your Committee stands ready to serve you in your church 
in an advisory capacity in the purchase of Audio-Visual Aids equipment. Conferences 
with your church workers on the use of Audio-Visuals in the work of S.S., T.U., 
W.M.U., Brotherhood, of any of the work of the church can be arranged through the 
Chairman of the Audio-Visual Aids Committee. Should your church desire the pro- 
duction of a visual program on your work, the committee will help if you will but 
call upon them. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. L. Pearson, Jr., Chairman 

CHURCH EXTENSION COMMITTEE 

All over Yates Association we find an increasing interest in our many developing 
areas and their need of missions and churches. There are at least 15-20 housing de- 
velopments within our territory. This presents a real responsibility. 

Last year we discussed many sites, investigated several, and were able to carry 
through on two — Ferrell Road Mission, off Route 5, and Binkley Memorial Baptist 
Church, north of Glen Lennox on Route 15/ 501. 

It was on January 29 that the Holloway Street Church was asked to sponsor a work 
between Gorman and Cheek Heights. All the neighboring churches were contacted, 
a census taken of the area, and a revival held in the Associational Tent beginning on 
May 25. On June 19 a home was purchased in the county by members of the mission 
and others interested. At the present time they have an enrollment of 57 in Sunday 
School, 34. in Training Union, and the average weekly offering is $65.00. 

The possibility of another church in the suburbs of Chapel Hill has been under 
consideration for several years. It was not until September 29, 1957 that the Associa- 
tional Board voted to purchase 3 J/2 acres on 15/501, north of Glen Lennox, known as 
Conner Ridge. It was bought for $7,000.00, with $1,000.00 down and the rest to be 
financed at 5% over a period of 5 years. 

Beginning in January 1958, meetings were held weekly in homes in Glen Lennox 
community by those interested in this new church project. Finally on Sunday, Septem- 
ber 21, the Olin T. Binkley Memorial Baptist Church was officially organized in the 
Hill Music Hall on the UNC Campus. Since that time Sunday School and Worship 
Services have been held in Gerrard Hall on the campus each Sunday morning. 

Forty-five people manifested their intentions of joining this fellowship at the 
Service Organization, but charter membership is being held open until November 30.

ORDINATION COMMITTEE 

We are happy to say that our Ordination Committee has experienced another most 
active and challenging year. It was our responsibility and privilege to work five of our 
churches in sending out six fine young men into the Christian ministry. 

At the request of the Angier Avenue Church, the Committee called an ordination 
council which examined and recommended the ordination of Gray Rogers. At the re- 
quest of the Grey Stone Church, Robert Carroll Hensley was examined and recommended 
as a proper candidate for ordination. At the request of the Grace Church, Boyd Lam- 
bert was examined and approved as a fit candidate for ordination. Upon request of the 
Guess Road Church, James H. Ballard was also examined and recommended as a proper 
candidate for ordination. At the request of the University Church, Chapel Hill, N. C, 
the Committee approved, after a proper examination, Robert Hyatt as a candidate for 
ordination. Also members of the Committee sat in as guests of the very impressive 
ordination Council, called by the University Church for the examination of Joseph 
Giles, who was approved for ordination. 

Each of these young men has been duly ordained and is now actively engaged in some 
aspect of the Christian ministry. We are certain that all of us rejoice with them in their 
labors. Likewise we are certain that all join in gratitude to God that He does still 
call and send into all the fields of His service men of such sterling Christian character, 
and in praying that He will use each of these men to the fullest of his powers to His 
own great glory. 

Respectfully submitted,

ASSOCIATIONAL BOARD 

It is gratifying to report that your Associational Board has met regularly during 
the year. There has been only one disappointing feature, a failure of the representa- 
tives of many churches to attend with regularity. On the part of those attending in- 
terest has been high, but attendance has usually been small, with only comparatively few 
churches represented at each session. 

Committee reports have been heard and acted upon ; reports of the associational or- 
ganizations have been made with some regularity and accepted. Certain committees 
have been quite active during the year, and I should like to commend to you in particular 
the finance, extension, activities, ordinations, audio-visual, and assembly grounds commit- 
tees for consistent and continuing activity through the year in behalf of the associations 
program and work. While other committees have not met as often, because their work 
did not require it, I think our program this year speaks well for the faithful work 
of the program committee, our constitution committee has given attention to its re- 
sponsibilities, and our evangelism committee has laid the groundwork for our united 
revival effort next year. 

At this point I should like to report the actions taken by the board. I shall group 
them in four parts. 

Interim Elections: 
We have had several vacancies among our officers and committee members as a result 
of removals from the bounds of the association, resignations and deaths. We regret 



50 



Tenth Annual Session 



particularly the removal of our vice-moderator, the Rev. W. Ches. Smith, who has 
served the association effectively and efficiently in several areas of service. Two posi- 
tions required replacement before this annual session, that of historian, to succeed the 
late lamented Rev. Z. B. Teel, Sr., in order that a report could be prepared for this 
meeting - , and that of evangelism chairman, due to the resignation of the Rev. Dennis 
Hockaday, in order that this committee could continue necessary planning for the re- 
vivals scheduled for next spring. The Rev. Fred Lipe was chosen historian, and the 
Rev. John T. Bunn, chairman of evangelism. 

Finance: 

The board designated May 26-30 as a period for training schools for the forward 
program of church finance. 

It authorized the creation of the Baptist Builders Club, with memberships of a 
minimum of $12 per year, to raise needed funds for extension and assembly grounds 
development which could not be provided from association income because of the failure 
of our churches to subscribe the budget adopted last year. 

The board also adopted a budget for the coming year as presented earlier to this 
body. 

Extension : 

The board authorized the Holloway Street Church to proceed with the Mission on 
the Ferrell Road Area, and this undertaking has been carried on with significant success. 

The board has supported the efforts leading to the organization of the Olin T. 
Binkley Memorial Baptist Church of Chapel Hill. 

The board recommends to this body that the request of the Olin T. Binkley Memo- 
rial Baptist Church to be received under the vvatchcare of the association for the period 
of one year, as required by the constitution, looking to reception into full membership 
a year hence, be approved and the church so received. 

General: 

The board approved the R.A. baseball league rules and by-laws as recommended for 
the State Convention program. 

It adopted a calendar of activities for 1959. In this connection, the calendar ap- 
proved calls for only four stated meetings of the board during the year. These are 
to be held at less conflicting times than the monthly meetings have been scheduled, in the 
hope that better attendance will result. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. C. Bradshaw, Moderator 

SUPERINTENDENT OF MISSIONS 

This last year the work of our association has been like a mountain range with 
its deep gorges and lofty peaks. The temporary recession, the lack of attendance at 
meetings, and the lack of understanding of associational missions on the part of many 
people caused discouragement for our leaders. 

On the other hand, the quality of our associational activities reached a new high. 
Many of them were superb. We cite: The "Three Nights of Fellowship for Deacons," 
the Church Librarians' Clinic with Miss Addie Mae Cooke, the Church Recreation 
Conferences with Mrs. Lake Pylant, the Christian Home Revival with Dr. Joe Burton, 
the Clinic on the Forward Program of Church Finance led by Dr. John T. Bunn, Jr., 



Yates Baptist Association 



51 



the coming of the Rev. J. V. James from the Home Mission Board, the Central School 
in September, plus many others — Vacation Bible School, Sunday School, Training- Union, 
Brotherhood and Woman's Missionary Union meetings. 

Several committees spent long hours last year in carrying out their responsibilities, 
notably Assembly Grounds, Church Extension, Activities, Program and Finance. We 
are proud of the gradual development of the Assembly Grounds, the streamlined Calen- 
dar of Activities, the launching of the Ferrell Road Mission and the Binkley Memorial 
Church, the shortened annual meeting, and the more encouraging financial picture. And 
the next twelve months promise to be the best yet. 

More churches were able to qualify for the Certificates of Merit last year. Those 
eligible for a blue ribbon were: Angier Avenue, Bethesda, Braggtovvn, Calvary, Cheek 
Heights, Durham Memorial, Edgemont, First, Gorman, Grace, Grey Stone, Guess Road, 
Holloway Street, Lystra, Mount Carmel, Mount Gilead, Mount Pisgah, Olive Chapel, 
Park View, Temple, Westwood and Yates. Those eligible for a red ribbon were: Bells, 
Cedar Fork, Ephesus, Lakewood, Lowe's Grove, Mount Hermon, Mount Moriah, Plain- 
view, Red Mountain, Ridgecrest and Watts Street. 

Every church supported the associational missions program financially again in 
1957-58 — making five consecutive years. We did not underwrite the $30,000.00 budget 
but we feel assured of a much better year in 1958-59. A sub-committee has been 
authorized to organize and promote the Baptist Builders' Club. 

One of the areas in which our association is making great strides is in the acquiring 
and production of audio-visual aids. We now have 2x2 slides of most of the work of our 
association, including a 45 minute audio-visual presentation. We also have over 100 
filmstrips covering various subjects under the headings of Brotherhood, Woman's Mis- 
sionary Union, Sunday School, Training Union, Stewardship, Royal Ambassadors and 
Missions. They are all available to the churches without charge. 

Through these audio-visual aids, opportunities to preach on Associational Missions in 
more and more churches, and in other ways, I am seeing an ever-increasing interest 
in our efforts to win souls in Jerusalem as well as Judea, Samaria and the Uttermost part.

THE BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 

Administrative Changes and Expansion of Services 
June 30, 1958 marked the culmination of 15 years of progressive leadership by W. C. 
Reed. After serving as Superintendent of Kennedy Home for seven years, Mr. Reed 
moved to Thomasville where he served as General Superintendent for eight years. Un- 
der his supervision the Children's Homes experienced one of their greatest periods of 
building, growth, and expansion of services. 

Dr. W. R. Wagoner, of North Wilkesboro, was elected by the trustees to succeed 
Mr. Reed and assumed his duties July 1. 

Progress 

Since October 1, 1957, North Carolina Baptists have directly served a grand total of 
793 children. In addition to these, our social workers have been able to place with rela-

1956. Through our dedicated social workers, many homes were re-established while 
others were saved from breaking-. 

Indian Orphanage 

Last year's report pointed up the need for expanding v our Foster Homes and for 
the care of the Indian children at Pembroke. The Baptist State Convention at its an- 
nual meeting last November voted unanimously to make the Odum Home at Pem- 
broke a part of the North Carolina Baptist Child Care Program. This work, with 16 
children, has been under the care and support of your Homes since January. Money 
has been set aside to build a new cottage. 

Financing an Expanding Program 
North Carolina Baptists have two sources for supporting the Children's Homes: 
First is a combination of the Once- A-Mo nth Offering and the Cooperative Program. 
Through this plan the Homes receive a fixed amount. This cannot be increased or de- 
creased except by vote of the Convention. 

Second is the Thanksgiving Offering. Every dollar marked "Thanksgiving Offer- 
ing" comes to the Children's Homes. Last year we asked for an increase of 10 per cent 
in the Thanksgiving Offering. The churches responded with a 15 per cent increase. 
This increase of $31,000 enabled us to support the Indian work at Pembroke and at the 
same time to considerably expand the Foster Home Program. 

The Future 

During the coming year a cottage will be erected at Mills Home for boys and a 
cottage at Kennedy Home for girls. These new buildings are being made possible by 
special gifts and bequests. Serious consideration must also be given in the near future 
to more adequate care for the children whose emotional stability has been seriously 
damaged. 

A bundle of Charity and Children should go into every Baptist Church in the state. 
All pastors and Sunday School superintendents will receive complimentary copies if 
they will send their names to the editor. 

Most important of all, remember to pray for the children being served by your 
Children's Homes, as well as the administration and staff members.

THE BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

The Baptist Hospital fills a more important place in the life and work of North 
Carolina Baptists each year. 

The Service rendered is not local, as last year there were 58,766 out-patient visits 
by persons from 92 of North Carolina's 100 counties and from 15 other states. Mother's 
Day funds enable our hospital to give these patients the care they so desperately need. 
Our association's Mother's Day Offering will be larger this year than last year but 
they have been needed this year as they have never been needed before. The need for 
assistance has been far beyond the offerings and we have not been able to give as much 
help as was needed in many cases. 

We hope that every church will make provision for the Mother's Day Offering so 
as to give every member of every church an opportunity to make a generous gift 



Yates Baptist Association

through our Mother's Day Offering- to help care for those who cannot care for them- 
selves, as all of the Mother's Day Offering goes to help those who cannot pay a part or 
all of their expenses. Mother's Day Offerings should be sent direct to the hospital.

N. G. BAPTIST HOMES FOR AGING 

The Homes For x\ging are now in their eighth year of operation — Resthaven, 
Winston-Salem, opened March 16, 1951, the Albemarle Home, December 7, 1953 ; 
and the Administration Building, Winston-Salem, June 13, 1957. The three Homes 
have facilities for 1 1 9 — counting residents and helpers. The average number of resi- 
dents will exceed 100. 

Efforts were launched in June to raise $100,000 to match a gift of Mr. Don G. 
Matthews, Sr., of $50,000 and land on which to build a fourth Home For The Aging 
to be located at Hamilton, Martin County. It is expected that the campaign will be 
successfully completed this year, and the construction of the new Home will then begin. 
This Home will provide facilities for approximately forty residents, giving a total 
capacity for all three Homes of 150 persons. 

The Homes have had a good year financially. The auditors' report for the year 
ending September 30, 1957 showed that the income was $268,924.58. When the new 
Administration Building was ready for occupancy, $103,000 was borrowed to finish 
paying for construction and equipment. All of this has been repaid except $20,000. 
Funds received from the Special Day Offering and the Cooperative Program have 
helped to meet the current cost of operation. The Homes have also received help from 
individual and corporation gifts. The largest individual gift for the year was $40,000. 

A large number of the residents have been aided financially. Less than ten per cent 
of the residents have given to the Homes assets sufficient to pay their cost of keep for 
life. Thirteen residents have paid the monthly rate, which is less than the actual cost 
to the Homes. Most of the residents are paying one-third to one-half of their cost of 
keep. This means, therefore, that the difference in cost is taken from funds received from 
denominational channels and special gifts by individuals and corporations. 

Our program of ministering to the aging presents a great challenge to the 850,000 
Baptists of our state. We think, first of the ever-increasing number of aging friends 
needing larger dormitory facilities ; and, secondly, of doubling the capacity of our in- 
firmary in the Administration Building. It now accommodates fifteen patients, but we 
should have space for at least thirty. It is estimated that elderly people will become in- 
valids at the rate of ten per cent annually. There have been times when we did not have 
sufficient room for those who needed to be in the infirmary. Our aging friends must 
look to our Baptist constituency to meet these pressing needs. 

As of October 17, 1958, 33 churches out of a membership of 43 in our Association, 
or 76.7% have contributed directly by special offerings to the N. C. Homes a total of 
$1,472.72. We rank eleventh among other Associations throughout the state in our 
contributions. Lets make it 100% next year and raise our rank nearer the top. 

With gratitude to all who have made our present Homes possible — churches, individ- 
uals, and corporations — and with confidence that the Baptists of North Carolina will

continue to care for these "old soldiers" of Christ in a deserving - way, we look to the 
future with great hope.

RELIEF AND ANNUITY BOARD 

Since its organization 40 years ago, the Relief and Annuity Board has paid out bene- 
fits totaling nearly $27 million. In 1957 alone, $2,245,861.18 in benefits was re- 
ceived by more than 5,000 retired or disabled ministers and denominational leaders 
and widows. 

At the close of 1957, there were approximately 17,500 active members in the 
Board's various retirement plans, with nearly 20,500 churches, Boards and agencies 
cooperating. During the year, membership in the plans increased by 2,454. 

Each year continues to show an increase in the number of retirement, disability and 
widow annuities. Last year 503 persons were added to the Board's annuity roll, 136 
more than the previous year. 

Promotion 

Mailing of The Years Ahead, the Board's official publication was increased to 
30,000 in February 1 9 5 7 . A new color film, also with the title "The Years Ahead," 
was produced during the year. It is being used throughout the Southern Baptist 
Convention at state, associational and district meetings to explain the Board's work and 
to show the benefits provided by the various protection and retirement plans. 

Presently, only 34% of our Southern Baptist ministers are enrolled in the Annuity 
Board's protection program. The Board's Promotion Department is constantly work- 
ing to enlist the thousands of others in this vital program. A study of the retirement or 
pension plans of other denominations reveals an important fact. In, the doniminations 
showing the greater percentage of their preachers in the protection program, the 
church assumes the entire financial responsibility, paying the pastor's dues as well as its 
own. 

Out of the approximately 11,000 Southern Baptist churches now participating with 
their pastor in this protection program, around 36% are paying both member and 
church dues. It is hoped our churches will give this matter some serious thought as a 
possible solution to giving these other preachers and their families the protection they 
need through the Annuity Board's program. 

Financial Security 
The Board's financial security is dependent on the work of the Investment Depart- 
ment. It is this department's duty to safeguard and increase by interest additions, the 
funds belonging to members of the retirement plans. Last year, 97.55% of the Board's 
total assets were invested for this purpose. Because of the splendid program of invest- 
ments, the Board was able to add an additional credit of V2 of 1 % to all the Board's 
reserves at the end of 1957. The basic rate of interest is 3%. 

The Plan in North Carolina 
M.R.P. 

On July t, 1957 six hundred and two members were participating actively in the 
North Carolina Ministers Retirement Plan. As of the same date in 1958 M.R.P. mem- 



Yates Baptist Association

bership stands at 553. This reflects the decreasing- trend as expected since the Plan 
was closed to new members on January 1, 1956 when the Southern Baptist Protection 
Plan became operative in our state. During- the year 23 annuities were set up — 22 Age 
Annuities and 1 Disability. The balance of the decrease is accounted for by transfer 
to other states; to Southern Baptist Protection Plan and by death of 5 members. 

At present 190 Annuitants are receiving benefits from the M.R.P. and 1 from 
S.B.P.P. 

S.B.P.P. 

On July 1, 1957 we had 302 members in the Southern Baptist Protection Plan. 
During the year 115 new certificates were issued; 6 M.R.P. members transferred to 
the Protection Plan; 20 transferred from other states to North Carolina for a total in- 
crease of 141. On the other hand, 6 North Carolina members transferred to other 
states and two members withdrew from the Plan, leaving a net increase of 133 so that 
the Protection Plan now has 435 members. We have pending and in process 38 appli- 
cations making a total of 473. 

Total membership in both Ministers Retirement Plan and Southern Baptist Pro- 
tection Plan now stands at 1,026. This means that about 35% of our possibilities is 
covered in our Plans. 

We are encouraged with the year's progress but urge all pastors and workers to lead 
their churches to participation. 

Ottis J. Hagler is Secretary of Retirement Plans in North Carolina and his address 
is Baptist Building, Raleigh, North Carolina. He is anxious to help pastors and churches 
obtain the benefits of the Plan in case of disability, old age, or death. Call on him! 

Officers of the Board 
Administrative officers of the Relief and Annuity Board are: R. Alton Reed, execu- 
tive secretary; Floyd B. Chaffln and L. T. Daniel, associate secretaries; Fred W. Noe, 
treasurer and investment director; Owen Henley, assistatnt director of investments and 
Mable H. McCartney, registrar. 

SOCIAL SERVICE AND CIVIC RIGHTEOUSNESS 

The need of today is for Divine leadership. In Proverbs the third chapter, sixth 
verse "In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths." This, we 
feel, is the only solution to the problems we face. Listed below are a few of the prob- 
lems we face, and certainly we will all agree that there must be Divine leadership in 
order to survive. 

Race Relations 

We believe in the right of an individual to worship God according to the dictates of 
his own heart. We do not believe in force or compulsion. We deplore the recent 
incidents in our country of the bombing of schools and churches. We feel that this should 
be condemned and that we reaffirm our position concerning the competency of the in- 
dividual soul. 

Beverage Alcohol 

We feel that the Christians should do all in their power to remove alcoholic beverages 
from our midst and should so lead our people to total abstinence on their part. We 



56 



Tenth Annual Session 



feel that the decaying- structure of our society has as its root alcoholic beverages. We 
should educate our people and should encourage our representatives both on a State 
and National level to exert their influence to eliminate the advertising of alcoholic 
beverages on any level. v 

Separation of Church and State 
Here again we certainly must agree that we need Divine leadership to cope with 
the problem of Church and State separation. We believe in the absolute separation of 
Church and State. This nation was founded upon the basis of religious freedom and 
we should guard against any movement, Catholic or otherwise, that would permit to any 
degree the formation of a Church and State system. 

Consistent Christian Living 
We all agree that there is a need to place into our society a consistent type of 
Christian witnessing in order that people everywhere might see through us Christ- 
likeness. For too long we have divorced the Sunday Morning Message and the Mon- 
day Morning Living. There needs to be a sincerity in every professing believer's life 
that is so positive that those that are lost might see Christ in us. 

The Christian Home 

We have been told by able Historians that one of the basic reasons for the fall of 
the Roman people was their decay of Home Life. Certainly we feel that as the home 
goes, so goes America. There is certainly a need here for Divine leadership in order 
that all of the parents of our nation might lead their children in the way of righteous- 
ness. We feel that all parents should spend more time with their children. There are 
many children who have told us that they really did not know their Mother and Dad. 
We feel that if a person is too busy to spend ample time with his family, he has more 
than God intended for him to do. 

This does by no means answer the problem of Juvenile Delinquency, Communism, 
Narcotics, Prostitution, Illegitimacy, The Filth on the Newsstand, The Alarming 
Divorce Rate, The Low Type Motion Pictures and many others that have not been listed. 

Let us, therefore, seek as never before the Leadership of the Lord in our daily lives, 
and that this report will not become just another report, but that we will exercise our 
convictions and, by the Grace of God, begin immediately to remedy the ills that are 
upon us.

Malbert Smith, Jr.

(1) Three for the first hundred members or fraction thereof and one for each 
additional hundred or fraction thereof, provided that the total number of mes- 
sengers shall not exceed ten. 

(2) All pastors of churches of the Association shall be recognized as messengers,

Article 4. Churches seeking to seat messengers in the Association shall apply to

such churches will be accorded all of the services of the Association and its privileges 
with the exception of the right to seat voting messengers. Upon recommendation of the

represent itself either by messenger or by letter at the annual session of the Association 
without sufficient reason, or that fails to support causes fostered by the denomination 
at large and of this Association in particular, or that ceases to be missionary in practice. 

Article 6. Any church may decline to send messengers to the Association at its

tives, seek to restrain by coercion or law the withdrawal action of the church.

HISTORY OF EBENEZER CHURCH 

The Ebenezer Church is located some five miles north of Route 70 in Orange 
County. A committee, consisting- of J. F. McDufEe, W. H. Ellen and W. A. Crab- 
tree, was instrumental in organizing- the church on October 24, 1895. 

Brother W. A. Crabtree was called as Pastor. Brother W. J. Dollar was elected 
Church Clerk. Brothers William Dollar and Jessie Martin were ordained as Deacons - y 
Brothers W. E. Dunnagan, Charlie Warren, as Trustees. The meetings of the church 
were held in the home of Mr. Charlie Garrard. Rev. J. F. McDufEe also preached to 
this first congregation. 

In a conference, meeting on October 27, 1895, the Pastor and Deacons recom- 
mended and the group adopted "Ebenezer" as the name of the church. At this time 
the Trustees were authorized to secure a deed for church lands. Brother W. J. Dollar 
agreed to pay for the land with the church to reimburse him with the purchase price. 
At a conference held November 9, 1895 the Trustees reported that the land had been 
secured from Mr. Archibald Cain and wife. The purchase price of fifteen dollars was 
paid by Brother Dollar. 

At this conference it was voted to build a house of worship. It was to be a 
frame structure thirty by forty feet. The plans were later reduced to twenty-six by 
thirty-six feet. The Building Committee consisted of J. M. Martin, W. J. Dollar, W. 
A. Crabtree, C. D. Warren, J. D. Riley, and W. E. Dunnagan. On Saturday, x'Vugust 
8, 1896, the first services were held in the new one-room frame-structure house. 
Thereafter services were held on Saturdays before the second Sundays and on the 
second Sundays of each month. 

During a conference held February 10, 1896 a Sunday School was organized and 
began on the second Sunday in March 1896 at ten o'clock. 

In September 1896 the church voted to apply for membership in <"he Mt. Zion 
Association, and upon application was received into the Association. 
In December 1896 the location of the cemetery was decided upon. 

The following are the pastors who served the church: 
W. A. Smith, March 1899 to Jan. 1900 J. F. McDufEe, Feb. 19 18 to Nov. 191 8 
W. E. Dunnagan, Jan. 1900 to Nov. 1900 W. G. Camp, Dec. 1918 to Dec. 19 19

H. F. Lindsey, Sept. 1916 to Feb. 191 8 R. E. Scarlett, Nov. 1945 

In November 1946 a committee was appointed to draw up plans for a new brick 
building to face the main road. The structure, which was to have a full basement 



Yates Baptist Association

and two wings with Sunday School rooms and all new furniture, was begun during 
195 1 and completed in 1952. The formal opening was held October 17, 1952- An 
electronic organ was presented by the Woman's Missionary Society of the church. 

Since 1952 walks have been laid; Sunday School rooms have been completed in 
the basement; wrought iron hand-rails installed by the steps; a carpet has been laid 
in the sanctuary; and additional land has been purchased at the rear of the church to 
be used as a parking lot. 

Church services were held twice monthly from the time of organization until May 
1954 when it was voted to hold services each Sunday. 

Respectfully submitted, 
G. Fred Lipe, Historian 

The materials for this history were submitted by Miss Helen Holsclaw, Clerk of 
ihe Ebenezer Church. 

HISTORY OF LOWE'S GROVE BAPTIST CHURCH 

The Lowe's Grove Church is situated some seven miles south of Durham, N. C. 
on the Alston Avenue Road. According to available records, this church was organ- 
ized on Monday, September 20, 1909, and began its existence by launching into a 
series of services on the same date. 

The congregation was formed from two separately meeting groups of people. 

On a Sunday afternoon in the summer of 1890 a group of young people who were 
in the habit of gathering at the home of Misses Gillie and Fannie Lowe (daughters of 
Mr. and Mrs. Edmund Lowe, then deceased) decided to begin Sunday School. After 
a few weeks the group decided to begin preaching services also. Rev. Willie Harward 
and Rev. Adolphus Barbee did the preaching for a while. Those were followed by 
Rev. P. H. Massey, a Methodist minister, who served for nineteen years, riding 
horseback from the Fayetteville Road Section. While Rev. Massey refused to accept 
any renumeration for his services across the years, he did consent to a love-offering of 
five dollars at the time of his leaving. 

In the spring of 1907 a second group of people began holding Sunday School in 
the abandoned High Point School building, which was located about one-quarter mile 
inside the Wake County line on the Alston Avenue Road. From this group the High 
Point Church was organized April 18, 1909, with Rev. R. E. Atkins as its pastor. 

In July and August, 1909, a joint-committee from both groups held meetings to 
consider the possibilitv of consolidating the two bodies into one. Upon the agreement 
of both groups to such consolidation, a beautiful grove of trees halfway between the 
High Point School and the Lowe's Grove School was selected as the future site of the 
new church. In the meantime permission was granted to use the facilities of the 
Lowe's Grove School until the group was able to erect a building of its own. It was 
agreed that the name of the new church should be "Lowe's Grove". Rev. R. E. 
Atkins was called as the first pastor; Mr. G. W. Ellis as clerk; Messrs. J. R. High, B. 
H. Marcom, and G. W. Ellis as trustees; and Mr. C. C. Edwards as Sunday School 
Superintendent. There were thirty-one charter members. 

In 1 9 10 a lot adjoining the school property was donated by Mr. R. H. Rigsbee of 
Durham on which to erect a building for the church. Timber for the structure was 
donated, cut, sawed, dressed, and hauled by members of the congregation. They also 
erected the new house of worship. 

About 1 9 14 the women decided that there ought to be a Woman's Missionary

Eleventh Annual Session 



Society. Mrs. J. L. Green was the first president, as well as the first leader of the 
Sunbeam Band. As the men met to transact the business of v the church, the women 
met to promote "missions." 

In 1925 the site of the church building was needed for the expansion of the school. 
So it was exchanged for a lot of the same size located on the opposite side of the 
Alston Avenue Road. To this location the church building was moved. At this time 
a basement was added, the inside remodeled, and the outside finished in a mottled 
stucco design. 

In 1948 this building was torn down and replaced with a new structure. Again 
the material and labor for this building were donated by members of the church. 
This new house was completed and dedicated in 1949, completely debt-free. 

In the same manner a two-bedroom parsonage was erected next to the church in 
1954, and an educational annex was built in 1958. The policy of the church is still 
"pay as you go"! 

In the early years of the church, business meetings were held quarterly on Saturday 
afternoons. All male members were required to attend, being liable to dismissal if 
they were absent without a valid reason. Members were also dismissed for non-pay- 
ment of pledges. Others whose behaviour was unbecoming were excluded from 
membership if, after several contacts by a committee, they refused to mend their ways. 

The church has been served by the following pastors: Rev. R. E. Atkins, J. M.

REPORT OF THE FINANCE COMMITTEE 

Your Finance Committee wishes to thank the churches and their leaders for the 
fine support they have given our Assocbtional program this year. We also appreciate 
the fine co-operation we have received from the Associational Office. 

In preparing the 1959-60 Budget for your consideration, we have taken note of 
the fact that for several years the churches have not fully subscribed the Budget 
as adopted, x^lso, the needs as presented by the Chairman of the Expansion Committee 
were particularly urgent this year. Your Finance Committee felt that we should 
attempt to do two things — 

First — Recommend a budget that would be realistic and make every effort to 
raise this total budget for the coming year. 

Second — To better acquaint the churches with the need that we invite the 
pastors and Chairmen of the Finance Committees of each church to a meeting and 
discuss the urgent need of the church Expansion Committees. 

The meeting was held, and we feel that our churches have a better understanding 



Yates Baptist Association 



37 



of the need and will respond as a result. We again urge every church to make 

regular monthly remittances to our treasurer this year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. Jethro Broadwell, Chairman

DIGEST OF CHURCH LETTERS 

I submit the following interesting facts concerning the year 1958-59 in Yates As- 
sociation as gleaned from the Church Letters: 

Three churches dedicated new sanctuaries. 

Five churches completed or dedicated educational buildings. 

Two churches redecorated and one purchased a pastorium. 

One church added a baptistry. 

One church installed chimes. 

Other churches are in the process of building or redecorating. 

One new mission, Fieldcrest, has been started through the cooperation of the As- 
sociation and the Holloway Street Church. This brings the total Missions or Chapels 
to six in the Yates Association. 

Eleven pastors have accepted calls to churches in the Association during the year 
and four churches are without pastors at the present time. 

On the whole, the church letters were in my hands earlier this year than heretofore 
and for this I would like to express my appreciation to everyone who helped make 
this possible. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Harrell B. Perry, Clerk

REPORT OF ASSOCIATIONAL BOARD 

Your Associational Board has held four regular meetings during the past year, 
in January, May, September, and October, and one called meeting, in October. 
While the attendance at the regular meetings was better and more representative of our 
churches than formerly, we still need to work toward a full representation of the 
churches at these meetings. The attendance at the called meeting went well beyond 
the constitutional quorum for such meetings, a majority of the churches represented 
and a majority of the board membership in attendance.

Eleventh Annual Session 



Interim Appointments: 

Happily no vacancies developed in the associational offices and only a few in com- 
mittees during the past year. Committee appointments were as follows: 

Activities: 

The Rev. Stephen Baumgardner, to fill a vacancy. 
Committees : 

The Rev. Jack Wilder, Chmn.; Mrs. J. E. Strawbridge, E. E. Ferrell, the Rev. 
Alex Booth, J. J. Thornton. 

Certificate of Merit: 

The Rev. Frank McGuire, Chmn., the Rev. Wilbur Kirchner, Bernice Smith. 

Baptist Builders: 

Dr. I. G. Greer, Chmn., Mrs. R. T. Strange, Ned May, R. R. Crosby, Charles 
Billings. 

Finance: 

The Board recommended to the State Mission Department of the State Convention 
that annual assistance be given the following churches as indicated : 

Ridgecrest, $8765 Faith, $9965 Holloway Street Mission on Glenn Road, $1080. 

Subsequently, due to late application, the Executive Committee by individual poll 
recommended that the Olin T. Binkley Memorial Church be granted $600 for the 
period July-December, 1959. 

Activities: 

The Board recommends adoption of the calendar of activities prepared by the 
Activities Committee, copies of which have been distributed to the Messengers. 

Assembly Grounds: 

During the year the Assembly Grounds Committee reported that grass had been 
sowed at the grounds and the lake fertilized. Pastors and Deacons and their wives had 
a picnic at the grounds June 13. 

Certificate of Merit: 

The standards for three different certificates, as formulated by the Committee, are 
included in the Book of Reports. The Board recommends their adoption. 

Extension : 

Upon recommendation of the Extension Committee, the Board recommends that 
thee Carrboro Baptist Church and the Hope Valley Baptist Church be received under 
watchcare for one year as provided in the Constitution, looking to full membership in 
the Association one year hence. 

Upon recommendation of the Extension Committee, the Board recommends that the 
Olin T. Binklev Memorial Baptist Church be requested to continue under the watch- 
care for a period of one year and that a Committee be appointed to study the admission 
of this church to full membership and report to the Board or the next annual meeting 
of the Association. 

On recommendation of the Extension Committee, following a study by pastors of 
churches in adjacent areas, the Board recommends that a mission be sponsored in the 
area between Horton Road and Eno River; that neighboring churches be requested to 



Yates Baptist Association 



41 



sponsor the mission; that financial support be a joint endeavor of the State Missions 
Department, the Yates Association and the sponsoring- church; that numerical or mem- 
bership support be a joint endeavor by all churches of the Association who have in- 
active, unenlisted, or interested church members in the area; that the Extension Com- 
mittee make formal request of the County School Board to rent the facilities of Holt 
Elementary School as the initial place of meeting-. 

General: 

In recog-nition of the able services of Mrs. J. C. Crutchfield, Jr., in the Association 
Office, the Board in January made her title, "Office Assistant" and on recommendation 
of the Finance Committee, raised her salary $ i o per month, retroactive to October 
i, 1958. 

In compliance with the directive of the 1959 Session of the Association to the 
Board to study the proposed changes in names of the Church Extension and Missions 
Committees, the matter was referred to the Constitution Committee of the coming 
year. The Board at its called meeting- also directed the Constitution Committee to 
prepare a draft clarifying portions of the Constitution which are not now clear. 

The Board recommends that the incoming Moderator appoint a long--range plan- 
ning- committee for the Association. 

Your Moderator wishes to take this opportunity to express appreciation for the 
support and cooperation you have given him and the work of the Association during 
the past two years. He is grateful for the opportunity you have given him to serve 
you and is humbly and deeply conscious of the honor which attaches to the position. 

During the past two years the Moderator has attended Worship Services at 34 
churches of the Association and went to another, where he visited with the pastor and 
people following Training Union, under the mistaken impression that this church had 
evening worship. He regrets that he was not able to visit every church for a Worship 
Service, but responsibilities at his own church and absence from the community on 
occasion made that impossible. These visits provided some of the most gratifying 
experiences of his term of office. The opportunity for fellowship was stimulating 
and enriching and served to deepen an already warm regard for all our churches and 
people The hospitality with which he was received in the churches will always be a 
pleasant memory. 

In concluding this term of office, the Moderator wishes to voice the hope the useful- 
ness of the Association will steadily increase, that its ministry and the ministry of the 
churches will continue to enlarge, that its witness and the witness of the churches will 
be clear and sure and confident, that the Kingdom of God may be extended, and that 
the Holy Spirit may rule increasingly in our hearts and lives and of those of an increas- 
ing number of people in the reach of our churches. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. C. Bradshaw, Moderator 

REPORT FROM 
SUPERINTENDENT OF MISSIONS 

Part I : The Past 

It hardly seems possible that another years has passed. It has been a time of 
readjustment as we prepared for the next five years, climaxing with the Third Jubilee 
in 1964. 



42 



Eleventh Annual Session 



Once more every church has had a part in the financial support of the program 
including- Binkley Memorial, under watchcare, and Hope Valley, coming under watch- 
care at this meeting. Carrboro comes under watchcare from the Mt. Zion Association, 
making 46 churches in our fellowship this next year. 

Fewer meetings were held last year in an attempt to streamline the calendar of 
activities. 

We acquired a folding machine which saves hours and hours of work in the office. 
This is another piece of equipment available in assisting our churches. Several film- 
strips and slides have been added to our audio-visual library, and finally we are 
happy to announce the purchase of a filmstrip projector and another 70 x 70 portable 
screen. 

Churches qualifying for the certificate of Merit with blue ribbon are: Angier Ave- 
nue, Bethesda, Braggtown, Calvary, Cheek Heights, Durham Memorial, Edgemont, 
First, Grace, Grey Stone, Guess Road, Holloway Street, Lystra, Mount Carmel, Mount 
Gilead, Mount Hermon, Mount Pisgah, Olive Chapel, Park View, Temple, Westwood, 
Yates. 

Churches qualifying for the Certificate of Merit with red ribbon are: Bells, Cedar 
Fork, Gorman, Immanuel, Lakewood, Lowe's Grove, Mount Moriah and Watts Street. 

Part II: The Future 

The work of our association, the work through association mission in our state 
and throughout our Southern Baptist Convention is more encouraging than at any 
time in our history. For the last three years the Home Mission Board has invited all 
the Associutional Missionaries to Ridgecrest: this summer the S. S. department of the 
Sunday School Board invited the missionaries to Birmingham, Ala. for 3 days 5 later 
the whole S. S. Board said "Come to Nashville, Tenn. and discuss mutual problems, 
programs, and give us your ideas — all expenses paid." 

When the professional consultants handed their report to the committee of 25 they 
had included a very strong statement on association misisons stating that our state con- 
vention would never attain maximum efficiency until it recognized the primary pro- 
motional position of the district association. A few days after Dr. Douglas Branch 
became our new General Secretary-Treasurer, your Supt. of Missions became president 
of the N. C. Association Missionaries' Conference. Since then he has been invited to 
sit in on several convention committee meetings, learn from them, and advise with them. 

The scheludes at Caswell and Fruitland are settled for three years, the annual state 
convention calendar of activities probably will be released next June — not November. 
A very close cooperation between the missionaries and state convention personnel is as- 
sured in the future. For the first time in the history of our state convention, associa- 
tion missionaries will have a part in the annual meeting in Greensboro. Your Supt. 
of Missions will lead a 25-minute panel on Tuesday night, Nov. 9. 

Oh, how we need to thank God for Dr. Spivey, Dr. Branch and their co-workers 
for their vision of Association Missions. The tide is turning. Too often in the past it 
has seemed to be a case of "What can the association do for the state convention and 
the Southern Baptist Convention?" Now both the Southern Baptist Convention and the 
State Convention are asking "What can we do for your association?" If you want to 
win souls for Christ around the world, strengthen the associations ; they will bolster 
the churches, and the churches will do the job. 

The association exists for the local church, the state convention exists for the local 
church, the Southern Baptist Convention exists for the local church, and the local 



Yates Baptist Association 



43 



church exists for the individual. But the local church that cannot see the Kingdom 
of God beyond its own immediate community is anti-missionary. 

I thank God for the long-range planning committee that you have approved to 
work with the moderator and me in thinking through what you want, what we should 
have and do. "Where there is no vision the people perish." It is my hope, in the near 
future, that the pastors can be called together for an all-day meeting — at least those 
who are willing to give the time, energy, and thought to it — to grapple with the 
make-up of our association program. Perhaps the work of the "Long-Range Planning 
Committee" should start with the pastors. 

In our association we have been making progress in some areas. In others we have 
been standing still. Let's look at the dark side of the picture first. 

We have been virtually standing still in reaching people through our Sunday 
Schools for several years, and in the amount of money coming from our churches during" 
the last three years. We are besieged with short pastorates for various reasons. Pastors 
who stay one or two years never really get acquainted with the other pastors or the 
program of the association. This hurts the fellowship, necessitates using the same 
established men in key committees year after year, and hinders churches from getting a 
real appreciation of local association missions. Oh, for longer pastorates! 

Since your Supt. of Missions came to the association there has not been strife be- 
tween churches but there has been strife within a few churches. Not once has the 
Fellowship Committee been called upon to advise and assist. We would venture to say 
that most of the trouble between pastors and members or among the members themselves 
could be resolved by simply following the scriptural pattern "If thy brother sin 
against thee, go to him alone . . . ." 

On the dark side we could also mention the lack of money, the flaws in our 
constitution, the lack of trained leadership in the churches capable of assuming places 
of leadership in the association, the apparent lack of interest in mission study on the 
part of our men, and the lack of church constitutions. But the greatest obstacle for 
our association program is the failure of most of our churches to adopt calendars or 
programs of activities from year to year. Last-minute planning will always tend to 
conflict with southwide, state and association dates. 

Now let us look on the brighter side. 

We shall have our constitution brought up to date this year with procedures made 
clear, duties of officers and committees defined. Some of us have been considering the 
wisdom of putting the committees on a rotating basis with only one-third of the 
committees being replaced each year. This should make for stability in our work. 

We are confident that a still better pattern of meetings and activities will come 
from the work of the long-range planning committee. We shall be studying further 
the history, purpose, value and program of our annual meeting with the possibility of 
semi-annual meetings of one dav each. 

We are continually striving for consolidation, correlation, more simultaneous 
meetings, and streamlining in general. We have been surprised by the request that a 
week be set aside in the spring or in the fall for church revivals in order to have 
simultaneous campaigns if we wish, and avoid conflicts with other important associa- 
tional meetings. Let us think it through; it has merit! 

It would help if we could get our financial years together. More and more I 
favor January through December over October through September. 

As important as meetings are, the value of our association should not be measured 



44 



Eleventh Annual Session 



alone by the dates in our annual calendar. The nature and frequency of the meeting's 
should be based upon the need of the churches. We must always strive for quality, 
and the work that is done between < meetings by church leaders and associational leaders 
is far more important than the meetings themselves. We must always ask "Of what 
value is this meeting to church A, church B, and church C! In all our activities the 
pastors are the keys to success or failure. It would be interesting to know, as an 
example, the extent of promotion in the churches for this annual meeting. 

We plan to continue enlarging our facilities in the area of audio-visual aids. 
Within a few days we shall have two 70" x 70" screens and a filmstrip projector in 
addition to the motion picture projector. We shall try harder to publicize the film- 
strip librarv available to the churches 5 we have over 125 filmstrips at the present time. 

We are always glad to assist churches (with as much advance notice as possible) 
in the matter of mimeographing, folding, addressing — even stencil cutting. 

But one of the main purposes of our association is evangelism and church extension. 
Once more we need to correlate the work of the Evangelism Committee, the Church 
Extension committee, our Sunday School department, and the Woman's Missionary 
Union. (It would help a lot if the W. M. U. leaders took office at the same time 
as Sunday School, Training Union, and Brotherhood.) 

We estimate that we will need four more churches and 6-10 more missions through 
1964. A mission is anywhere one or more members are sent from the local church or 
churches at regular intervals to preach or teach the word of God. We must analyze 
our whole association territory and make sure that recommendations are based upon 
the facts. 

The 1000 Jews, the four hospitals, the 2500 Baptist students in Duke and U.N.C. 
are our responsibility. 

We are considering the possibility of a perennial census of our area — especially 
Durham. Going back to a home every year to ask the occupants the same questions is 
not good public relations. 

Above everything else in our association we need to love and appreciate each 
other. Outsiders should be able to say of the pastors and the churches of Yates Associa- 
tion, "They have been with Jesus," but also "See how they love each other." We must 
not have country churches and city churches, high churches and low churches, big 
preachers and little preachers. We need more fellowship, more oneness in Christ, 
more willingness to cooperate even for cooperation itself, more of a vision of the un- 
saved, unreached, unenlisted multitudes in our associational territory. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Hubert S. Mumford

REPORT ON 

BIBLICAL RECORDER AND OTHER BAPTIST LITERATURE 

Unfortunately, the non-Christian is not aware of the protective shield of sin-resistant 
armour that the Holy Spirit weaves around every devout Christian. The stress and 
strain that accompanies the vicious cycle which humanity finds itself involved in makes 
the person who isn't constantly in communion with Christ more susceptible to the 
malignancy of modern loose living. When the Psalmist said "Be still and know that 
I am God.", (Ps. 46:10) he, no doubt knew that to think with vision one should 
have a source of information that would counsel, inspire, discipline, and challenge to 
new aspirations. The Bible is, of course, the first and best source of this information. 
Those that heed the counsel of God's word and pause long enough to pen their think- 
ing pose a vivid picture to those of us who haven't paused to see, on the Trinity 
scene, the facts of God's providence. Baptists of North Carolina little realize the op- 
portunity that is ours to participate in the views and thinking of those who under 
God's inspiration have shared the joys of their convictions through our State Baptist 
Literature. 

There are approximately 219,000 Baptist homes in North Carolina. A few of 
these homes do not receive the daily news print but somehow gain access to numerous 
volumes and issues of questionable literature. The Biblical Recorder, with a current 
circulation of approximately 63,000, should be entering the majority, if not all, these 
homes. For the small sum of three or four cents per week we could get a copy of 
the Biblical Recorder into their hands, thereby exposing them to state wide Baptist 
information. Generally North Carolina Baptists need to become more familiar with 
the three subscription plans offered by the Recorder. 

There are other sources of equally prominent Baptist literature. The Charity and 
Children continues to relay splendid information concerning the Baptist Homes and 
Conventions. The Sunday School Board, in addition to Sunday School, Training Union, 
and Study Course materials, publishes Open Windows for personal devotions, Home 
Life for Christian families, Home and Foreign Missions literature and numerous 
tracts. From the Baptist Book Store, we can select a wide choice of books and periodi- 
cals that will embrace our lives spiritually. 

With all this select literature at our disposal let us, with the counsel of the Apostle 
Paul, give our attention to reading.

REPORT ON 
CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION 

North Carolina Baptists have the responsibility for the Christian Education of ap- 
proximately 26,000 young- people who are enrolled in the various colleges, universities, 
nursing schools and other specialized educational institutions within the state. Added 
to this is a missionary responsibility for approximately 1,000 International Students 
who are also studying in these schools. This challenge is being met in two ways; 
through our own Baptist colleges, and through the program of the Baptist Student 
Union on the non-Baptist campuses. 

I. The Baptist Colleges: 

North Carolina Baptists have seven colleges which are: Wake Forest, founded 1834; 
Chowan, 1848; Mars Hill, 1856; Campbell, 1887; Wingate, 18965 Meredith, 1899; 
and Gardner-Webb, 1907. They enroll together nearly 8,000 students, or more than 
one-eighth of all college students in the state. The churches contribute through the 
Co-operative Program $1,000,000 a year to these schools, half of which is applied to 
operating costs, the other half being designated for capital improvements. Annual 
operating budgets total more than $10,000,000. Students pay 60%. of the cost of 
their education, the rest, besides that which is contributed by the Convention, coming 
from endowment. Most significant development of the past year was the decision to 
move ahead to a full four year program by three of the Junior Colleges. 

II. The Baptist Student Union: 

The Baptist Student Union seeks to minister to the four out of five Baptist young 
people who are not enrolled in a Baptist College. The budget of the State Student 
Department last year totaled $67,358.42. A variety of activities is planned by the 
state department for all Baptist students in the state, especially a Convention in the 
Fall and a Spring Leadership Training Conference. There are within the boundaries 
of the Yates Association two active Baptist Student Union organizations. 

A. Duke University 

There are five hundred Baptists in the Duke student body. A full time director 
is employed to counsel with these young people and to advise with the program. 
Besides week-end activities in the churches, there is a weekly devotional program on 
campus. Other activities include extension work at the V. A. Hospital and the Butner 
Training School, social events, retreats and publication of a weekly news sheet. 

B. University of North Carolina 

As at all colleges and universities, the University of North Carolina had a record 
enrollment of 8,000 students this fall, a trend that will give us a projected student 
body of 14,800 by 1967. In that student body today we have over 2,000 Baptist 
students, and, assuming the same proportion, we will have a total of 3,650 in 
seven years! By that time we will have more than twice as many student families as 
there are in the average church. We will have more Baptist graduate and professional 
students alone than the total enrollment of many of our Baptist Colleges. 

Who are these who comprise this campus community? We would say they are 
young people seeking an education, or that they are tomorrow's leaders in church, local, 
national and international affairs. They are persons, and, closer home — they are 
your sons and daughters. But let us look more discerningly to discover the composi- 
tion of our academic communities and the nature of our concern for them. 



48 



Eleventh Annual Session 



The obvious category in the academic community is the undergraduate student — 
happy, mischievous, exasperating- and inspiring. But more can be said: behind the sur- 
face frivolity lies intense inner struggle as maturity seems to evade their grasp. They 
ask life's urgent questions about the meaning of life, the role of marriage, the meaning 
of vocation, and they are forced to make life's basic decisions at a time when for the 
most part mature judgment is not fully theirs. They are engaged in the anxiety rid- 
den struggle for emotional independence, the search for independent selfhood, and for 
many it is expressed in rebellion against every vestige of authority including church 
and family. All studies, and there are many, show them to be persons of an easy 
tolerance for differences, a strong tendency to conform and an appalling religious 
illiteracy. 

Fitting into this category to some extent and yet distinct from it are two other 
groups of students. The graduate student's needs may closely parallel those of the 
undergraduate except for an increased intensity of emotional strain and the additional 
intellectual sophistication inherent in more advanced work. The married student who 
now comprises 23% of the student pouplation is a relative new-comer to the campus 
scene and deserves distinctive program activities to meet his or her own peculiar concerns. 

Among the faces of the campus are also those of the faculty. Too long looked 
upon only as resource people for student groups, we are now aware that there are 
spiritual needs which are the faculty member's own concern. Though he may be 
reluctant initially to acknowledge how far behind his knowledge of religion com- 
pared to his understanding of electronics, the Civil War or Shakespeare, he needs to be 
made aware of it and given opportunity to achieve a mature knowledge and love of 
God. To paraphrase Paul Jacquith, any ministry to the academic community 
which is conceived simply in terms of program for students is selling short the 
gospel and the church as well as the faculty and students. 

Truly effective work of Christian education for the academic community must 
concern itself with this diversity in role and development obvious on any campus. It 
must also consider that the community itself is different in significant ways from 
other communities. It is a community in existence for one primary purpose, namely, 
education. It is a community of learning, and, as such, has its own culture, as its 
own ethos, value systems and even its own jargon. The persons who comprise this 
community are peculiar in their involvement, their gifts and their occupation. To be 
sure, this community and these people reflect substantially the same characteristics 
as other communities and other people. Thus, the same gospel must be proclaimed for 
it is the gospel for all people. Nevertheless, it must be proclaimed here in terms 
and images that speak to campus personnel, students, faculty and administration, and 
speak to them where they are. 

What is needed in order to make the Christian faith and way relatively known in 
such a community r Four things are requisite: First, there is a need for a means of 
spiritual health. Strengthening the spiritual life is essential and a way by which 
worship privately and in the fellowship of the church can be made an integral part 
of life is a need of first magnitude. Second, there is needed a means of achieving 
emotional maturity, a fellowship which provides the impetus to become one's own true 
self and provides the strength to bring into alignment one's ideals and one's actions 
in the callous world of the campus. Third, there is the need for a means of examin- 
ing all affirming a revelant faith in God as Lord of all life, a classroom in which 
to study, to examine, even to doubt our faith in order to understand it and make it 
our own. Finally, there is need for a means of experimenting with the Chris- 



Yates Baptist Association 



49 



tain life, a laboratory in which to work by trial and even by error to find a possible 
"better way" to have a faith lived out in all areas of our existence. 

The role of our churches in this community with these needs depends upon the 
campus. Our churches have corporately established colleges of our own at which, 
hopefully, we are ministering creatively and redemptively to the total needs of stu- 
dents and faculty, mental, emotional and spiritual. It might be said that here the 
churches are at work by means of the academic community to provide the educational 
experience in a consistent context of concern for the whole person. Here the college 
turns its face to the churches and, ideally, finds a ministry in depth for all its 
people within its own frame of reference. 

However, four out of five of our Baptist students are living out these crucial 
years in a different context. Here the churches must turn their faces to the campus 
and look for an effective way to win, nurture and support. In the Baptist Student 
Union the churches are at work in the academic community seeking in small measure to 
evidence a concern for the facets of personhood not overtly stressed in communities 
of learning with secular orientation. 

In this regard the role of the B. S. L T . is undergoing radical change as our in- 
sights deepen and our horizons are raised. There is a basic concern for the under- 
graduate and his needs for he comprises the majority of the total community. However, 
peculiar needs of graduate students, married students and facultv press upon us and 
call for effective resolution through a significant ministry in depth offered in their 
terms and at their level. All of these, by the grace of God and your significant ma- 
terial and moral support, we will be able alternately to do.

REPORT ON 
THE BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOME 

North Carolina Baptists have shown remarkable interest in their Children's Homes 
during the past year. Numerous church groups have visited the three campuses. 
Continued financial support has been encouraging. Awakened interest in your Child 
Care program has been evidenced in many respects. 

PROGRAM STUDIED: During the past year members of the Children's Homes 
staff, under the best leadership available, have engaged themselves in a conscientious 
study of the entire Child Care program sponsored by North Carolina Baptists. Find- 
ings have been gratifying. The program has a commendable history and is one of 
the best in the nation. Every effort is being made by the present administration to 
continue the best care possible for dependent children. 

CHILDREN SERVED: More than 1,000 boys and girls were served by the 
Children's Homes during the past year. Mills Home, Kennedy Home and Odum 
Home provided care for 547 children while 197 lived in Foster Homes. Through 
financial assistance of the Mothers Aid program 40 children were able to live with 
their mothers. Supervision and financial help were afforded 30 college students. 
Resourceful case workers assisted 214 additional children to find homes with relatives 
and other social service agencies. 

COTTAGE CONSTRUCTION: Three cottages are currently under construc- 
tion — one at each of the three Homes. The Roy Culler family of High Point is 
providing funds for a boys' cottage at Mills Home. The H. C. Ferebee family of 



50 



Eleventh Annual Session 



Camden is making possible a cottage for girls at Kennedy Home. The new cottage 
at Pembroke will provide administrative offices, living accommodations as well as 
kitchen and dining facilities for the Indian boys and girls. 

ADMINISTRATIVE CHANGE: Vernon S. Sparrow became Superintendent 
at Mills Home, Thomasville, July i, 1959. He comes to this post with an excellent 
background of training and experience. Prior to Mr. Sparrow's going to Mills 
Home he served as associate pastor and minister of education in the First Baptist 
Church of Lenoir. 

SIGNIFICANT CONVENTION ACTION: Significant recommendations relative 
to the Children's Homes were adopted by the Baptist State Convention in May fol- 
lowing a two and a half year study by the Committee of Twenty-five. They are as 
follows: 

1. That the number of children in foster home care be increased to approximate 
the number in institutional care. 

2. That the Children's Homes begin to develop new types of programs to help 
children who are not being adequately cared for in other ways. 

3. That increased attention be given to families throughout the state by well- 
trained, mature case work consultants to help avoid family breakdowns. 

MORE ADEQUATE FINANCIAL SUPPORT: The Convention has voted to 
bring the Children's Homes into the Cooperative Program on the same basis as all 
other institutions and objects. Churches may continue to send Once-A-Month offerings 
and special gifts. Designated gifts from churches to the Children's Homes will 
be administered by the Convention in the same manner as designated gifts from 
churches to other institutions. The Homes are encouraged with this improved financial 
relationship with the Convention. For lack of sufficient income the Homes operated 
on a $22,000 deficit in 1958. The deficit for 1959 will be approximately $65,000. 
The only way the Homes have of meeting the $65,000 deficit this year is through 
a substantial increase in the Thanksgiving Offering. 

WHAT OF THE FUTURE? : With the increase in population, the development 
of industry, the growth of cities and the mounting tensions in present day society, 
there is an increasing demand for services to dependent children. Your Children's 
Homes are being asked by the Convention to expand their services. With your prayers, 
loyal and generous support, your leadership will continue to move forward as re- 
sources are made available.

C. M. Hight, 
Orphanage Representative 

REPORT ON 
THE BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

The services of our Baptist Hospital are linked a little closer each year to the life 
and work of North Carolina Baptists. We care and share for the needy sick on 
Mother's Day. The care of the needy sick is the heart of Baptist Hospital's Ministry 
of healing. This work is supported by North Carolina Baptists through funds con- 
tributed in their churches on Mother's Day. The money they give is virtually 
doubled in usefulness because staff physicians from the Bowman Gray School of 
Medicine make no charge for professional services. The needy patient pays what he 
can toward his care. The hospital receives gifts and aid from patients, friends, 



Yates Baptist Association 



51 



business firms, health and welfare agencies. However, there is a wide gap between 
the amount received from these sources and the cost of the patient's care. Mother's 
Day funds are used to bridge this gap. Because of them the Hospital is able to ex- 
tend its healing ministry to the poor man as well as to the person whom God has 
blessed with worldly goods. Although Mother's Day funds have increased, the need 
increases too, as the Hospital adds services and our population grows. 

The Baptist Hospital lives with the determination that no person who needs its 
care and treatment shall be turned away because of lack of money to pay the full cost. 
Forty per cent of the patient care for 1958 was for these people who came from 95 
of North Carolina's 100 counties. 

Let's increase our Mother's Day offering by 25 per cent in 1959.

Hospital Representative 

REPORT ON BAPTIST HOMES 
FOR AGING 

The ninth year of operation of the Baptist Homes for Aging began March 16, 
1959. All three of the Homes — Resthaven, Albemarle, and Headquarters — have 
had a good year, and have been filled practically all the year to capacity — 119, 
counting residents and helpers. When vacancies occur, there are always more appli- 
cations on the waiting list than rooms to be filled. 

Since the average age of a resident is about 80 years, there were several deaths 
during the year. Among the deceased was the oldest resident, "Uncle" John T. 
Holt, formerly of Wilsons Mills, N. C. He died July 13, being 99 years of age. 
Had he lived until February 26, i960, he would have been ONE-HUNDRED YEARS 
of age. He was a resident of the Homes nearly eight years, and for the past two 
years was a patient in the infirmary of the Homes. He was a great soul, and will be 
keenly missed. 

This has been another year of God's favor upon the Homes and of encouraging 
progress. While the campaign to raise funds to build the fourth Home in Eastern 
Carolina, at Hamilton, has not been completed, yet there is good reason to believe 
that the money will be secured this year and construction will begin. Mr. Don G. 
Matthews, of Hamilton, has given the land for the site, and most of the $50,000 
which he promised. He is ready to give the balance when the extra $100,000 has 
been raised. With reorganization of plans and persistent effort, the balance needed 
can and will be forthcoming. 

The construction of the Infirmary Annex, which will give 28 additional bed- 
rooms and some utility rooms, is getting underway. The contractor, R. K. Stewart 
& Son, of High Point, has been selected. Order for structural steel has been placed, 
and the work should progress as rapidly as possible. The estimated cost of the 
Infirmary Annex is $193,035. 

The two most pressing needs of the Homes for Aging now are (1) to finish 
raising the funds to start construction of the Hamilton Home, and (2) to raise about 
$150,000 to cover the balance needed to pay for the additional facilities in the in- 
firmary expansion. When these two projects are completed, 60 more bedrooms will 
be added for anxious and needy residents, thus increasing the total capacity of all 
the Homes to 170 residents. 



52 



Eleventh Annual Session 



A Special Day Offering of $175,000 in February, 196(0, will help to meet in- 
firmary, cost, and continue to give financial help to residents who need aid. 

Would you like to have a generous part in making- these plans become a reality 
at the earliest possible date? If so, please let us hear from you. Why not fur- 
nish, or endow, or construct a room with your gift? $600 will furnish, $1,000 
will endow, and $4,000 will construct a room. If you are not able to do as much, 
send the amount you can give to the N. C. Baptist Homes for Aging, Winston- 
Salem, North Carolina. 

All connected with the N. C. Baptist Homes are most grateful to the churches, 
individuals and corporations for the help given to offer our aging friends who live 
in the Homes a program of security, comfort, congeniality, and a Christian ministry. 

Contributions made last year by churches in the Yates Association other than 
through the Cooperative Program amounted to $1,698.05 as of October 1, 1959. 
This was an increase of approximately 20% over the previous year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. T. Howerton, 

Baptist Homes Representative 

REPORT OF SUNDAY SCHOOL 

The Associational Sunday School plays a very vital part in winning the lost to 
Christ. This is the very essence of the work of the Sunday School. In order for 
our Associational Sunday School workers to do an effective job, they must have your 
cooperation. We would like very much to help you in your own Sunday School if you 
feel that we might have something to contribute. In studying Sunday School work 
for the past few years, we have to agree with Dr. Ihley in the statement that he 
made at the Regional Sunday School Convention held at Bethesda Church. He said 
that he felt that the biggest problem that we face now in Sunday School is the prob- 
lem of teaching. So many of our teachers have not had the opportunity to learn the 
fundamentals of teaching- and have not fully realized the difference between teach- 
ing and preaching. 

During the early days of the Sunday School movement in America the question 
was asked, "When is a school not a school?" The answer was, "When it is a Sunday 
School." This opinion grew out of the efforts of volunteer, untrained leaders who 
were doing their best, but didn't know how. 

The question might be asked, "Why is there such a pronounced need for the 
improvement of teaching in the Sunday School when last year more than 850,000 
Sunday School Training Awards were earned by 700,000 officers and teachers?" Out 
of 860,753 books in the Sunday School Training Course sold this past twelve-month 
period, 85,576 were in the field of teaching and 775,177 were in other areas. These 
figures clearly indicate that the reason Sunday School teachers are not doing a better 
job of teaching is because they are not being trained in the art of teaching. It would 
be hard to suggest a more important area of knowledge needed by the teacher than 
"How to Teach." Recognizing this need, we are planning to put a great deal of 
emphasis on the improvement of teaching in our Association this year. 

During thy past year our Associational Sunday School met only once. That 
meeting was held at Grey Stone on March 31 with approximately 140 people in at- 
tendance. The Standard of Excellence was stressed at that meeting. Already this year 
we have held a Central Training School which was held at Yates Church October 



Yates Baptist Association 



53 



19th through 23rd. This was held in conjunction with the Training Union and 

about 200 awards were earned. 13 churches participated in Preparation week this 

year and 42 Vacation Bible Schools were held. 

It is our prayer that during this year we might catch a vision of what can be 

done for our Lord if we will unite our efforts and work together for the glory of God. 

Respectfully submitted, 
V. A. Shore, Jr., Supt.

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD 

Each year the work in and through our Brotherhood organizations seems to be 
making progress. Above everything else we are proud of the Brotherhoods organized 
in Mt. Moriah and Faith churches this past year. 

Perhaps next in importance is the enlistment and training of Royal Ambassador 
leaders by our Superintendent of Missions through the Southern Baptist Basic Leader- 
ship Course. Nearly sixty men have given the required four class-hours and passed 
the written examination. 15-20 other men lack only the examination. Yates Associa- 
tion is one of the leading associations in North Carolina in this emphasis. 

Because most of the Brotherhood and Royal Ambassador supplies are available 
only in Memphis, Tenn., to our associational office is keeping on hand a good selection 
for the convenience of the churches. 

During the year Mr. Dallas Branch organized and supervised Royal Ambassador 
basketball and baseball leagues. Both were highly successful. The participants and 
winners are as follows: 

Basketball 

Grace won the championship in both Junior and Intermediate leagues during the 
season and in the play-offs. Holloway St. won the sportsmanship plaques in both 
leagues. 

Baseball 

Intermediates Juniors 

Regular Season Champs — Bethesda Regular Season Champs — Cedar Fork 

Play-Off Champs — Bethesda Play-Of Champs — Yates 

Sportsmanship Award — Mt. Hermon Sportsmanship Award — Guess Road

Because of a change in months, two clinics were held during this associational 
vear, one in October, 1958 in Edgemont Church and one in September, 1959 in Hollo- 
way Street Church. In the Edgemont meeting several men were enlisted from the 
Raleigh Ass'n. as instructors. This September we were fortunate in having as con- 
ference leaders two state convention personnel, the Rev. Clyde Davis, new N. C. 
Brotherhood Secretary, and the Rev. B. W. Jackson, Royal Ambassador Secretary. 

Other meetings during the year included a study of the Brotherhood Guidebook at 
Grace Church for one week, a Man-Boy Night at Durham Memorial in July and a 
tremendous Ladies' Night Banquet at Temple Church in January. It ended on a brief 
serious note with a message by the Rev. Douglas Aldrich, pastor of Forest Hills 
Church, Raleigh, but most of the evening was given to fun and fellowship with Dr. 
John T. Bunn, as chief entertainer. Mr. William Bonner was toastmaster. 

This year an "Efficiency Plaque" was added to the well-known "Attendance 
Trophy" and rivalry has been keen. The trophy has been won by Mt. Hermon, 
Grace and Rose of Sharon during the year, and the plaque has been taken by Grace, 
Holloway St. and Temple. 

During the year I have had numerous opportunities to visit churches and serve in 
various ways. We stand ready to assist churches in every way possible during the 
coming year. 

Respecftully submitted, 
George Worthington, 
Brotherhood President 

REPORT OF 
WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

The year 1958-59 was the eleventh in the life of the Woman's Missionary Union 
of Yates Baptist Association. During these years there has been steady growth in 
organizational strength and a growing missions consciousness in the churches with 
missionary organizations. As they have been mindful of the permanent watchword of 
WMU, "Laborers together with God" the women have truly been "Laborers to-Get- 
Her to God" as they have promoted Christian missions through a program of mission 
study, prayer, community missions and stewardship. It has been a personal joy to 
labor with the faithful women of Yates Association and as I turn the gavel over to 
another at the Annual Meeting in the Spring, it will be with a deep sense of gratitude 
for the opportunities that have come my way to be of service. 

A study of the statistics reveals both gains and losses. In 1958 there were 177 
organizations, including Woman's Missionary Societies and youth auxiliaries. This 
year there were 188 organizations with 4,891 members, in comparison with 4,807 in 
1958. Publications subscriptions counted at the close of the promotional year were 
1,761, an increase of 219. This reveals more new subscriptions than new members en- 
listed. We look forward to the time when enlistment of a new member will always 
mean a new subscription, but now less than half of our members receive periodicals. 

To many members of Woman's Missionary Union, December and March are 
synonymous with the Week of Prayer for Foreign Missions and the Week of Prayer for 
Home Missions. Inclusion of program material in the magazines has made it possible 
for the organizations to make better preparation for the prayer sessions, and has placed 
information in the hands of those who cannot attend the meetings, but who can bene- 
fit by the material and participate through prayer and gifts. There was an increase 
of 41 organizations observing Weeks of Prayer, making a total of 141. We are 



58 



Eleventh Annual Session 



grateful to the pastors who have assisted leaders in promoting the weeks of prayer 
and the accompanying offerings. Offerings reported in 1958 for Foreign Missions, 
Home Missions, State Missions, as well as Heck Jones Offering (only offering solely 
allocated by the State W.M.U.) wewre $21,821.40, but were increased in 1959 to 
$28,1 89.00. 

We are confident if more of our women and young people will read and study more 
mission books and periodicals these offerings will go even higher. Although there 
were more mission books taught in the WMS last year, there were fewer in the auxil- 
iaries, decreasing from 244 to 234. Reports indicate only 1,965 members read at 
least one book this year, for a decrease of 260. We hope these figures are incorrect 
since it would appear that some organizations gave quarterly figures rather than 
annual figures in their last reports. 

In keeping with the Third Jubilee Advance Goals figures, soul-winning was the 
community missions emphasis for 1958-59. Scores of women were inspired to further 
their efforts in soul-winning as they studied Dr. Floy Barnard's book "Christian 
Witnessing." As this book was not released until summer, it is hoped that many 
more will be studying the book during the new year. All the WMS organizations and 
115 auxiliaries, a total of 158, six more than last year, participated in Community 
Missions. 

The teaching of tithing and the commitment of members are major in Woman's 
Missionary Union's stewardship program. 41%, or 1,526, of the members of Jr. GA, 
Intermediate GA, Y.W.A., and W.M.S. have experienced the joy of giving in this 
way. 

Women and young people indicated an interest in furthering their knowledge of 
missions by attending inspirational and methods conferences during the year. A 
Foreign Mission Study Institute was offered by our Association with classes for 
teachers for all age groups. Attendance at the Annual Leadership Conference in 
October 1958 reached 185, with 25 Girls Auxiliary Counselors enrolling in a course 
ior accreditation under the direction of the State GA Director, Miss Barbara Rodman. 
In order that more Business Women might attend, the Annual Meeting was held from 
4:30 to 9 P.M. In spite of the inclement weather and the inconvenient time assigned 
to us for the meeting (Thursday before Easter) there were 199 in attendance. Miss 
Lydia Green, missionary to Malaya and Mrs. Charles Maddry, Regional President, were 
guest speakers. A "Preparation Night" was held in August, to explain to officers 
some of the changes in the work for the new year, and a Leadership Conference this 
September reached 196. 

Our Association Youth Directors have been busy about their tasks. The YWAs met 
for council meetings, and installation and a picnic. A very successful Association 
GA Camp was held at Camp Kanata with Mrs. Violet Lacy as Director. The Sunbeam 
Director attended a Regional Workshop at Oxford. Finding it necessary to resign 
she was replaced by Mrs. J. E. Hughes. Approximately 8 5 women attended the An- 
nual Regional Meeting at Oxford. Our attendance exceeded all other associations 
except the host group. 

Eight representatives from the Association attended a workshop at Southeastern 
Seminary in May and the Sunbeam Leader and President went to Ridgecrest during 
the summer. It was gratifying to see many from the Durham churches taking in the 
inspiration of the week. It is hoped that each year will find more churches sending 
their WMU Presidents to Ridgecrest.

REPORT ON 
EVANGELISM COMMITTEE 

Yates Baptist can well be proud of the emphasis placed upon evangelism and 
the results of that emphasis during the past associational year. The Yates Baptist 
Association Simultaneous Crusade closed April 26, 1959 with 24 churches reporting 
the following results: 245 professions of faith; 114 transferrals of church letters, 18 
professions of faith by those who united with other church bodies ; and, 9 decisions 
for church related vocations. Attendance in services during the crusade was reported 
to be 68,980. One of the highlights of the Simultaneous effort was the Televangelism 
Series programmed by WTVD, Durham, N. C, which made available to the general 
viewing public a series of thirteen programs centered about the vital truths of Chris- 
tianity. 

The major effort for 1 959-1 960, by your Associational Evangelism Committee, 
will be centered about a Yates Baptist Evangelistic Conference January 11, i960. 

There is a major need to re-evaluate our methods and procedures in evangelism. 
The day of the mass exodus of the "sinner" from the enticements of public activities 
to the "revival" services is almost a thing of the past. Records of the vast majority 
of churches indicate that approximately 90% of those who make professions of faith 
come through the Sunday School, or the Church School, where they have been given 
a framework of reference upon which to base their profession. Of the three basic 
types of evangelism: (1) professional, which is primarily concerned with the initial 
response to Christ; (2) lay evangelism, which is primarily concerned with the win- 
ning of the lost in the home; and (3) educational evangelism, which is concerned 
with the whole life, that is before, during and after conversion, it appears that better 
results have been achieved by the latter. But to utilize the church school or the 



60 



Eleventh Annual Session 



Sunday School to its fullest extent as the most effective evangelistic arm of the local 
church four areas of weakness must be strengthened. 

1. Teacher Training 

2. Literature 

3. Indoctrination of new members 

4. The lay activity of encircling- and enlisting those within and without the 
local church. 

When a thorough going revival of teacher training has been accomplished, when 
literature is used which challenges the student, when new members are thoroughly in- 
doctrinated into the local church and when laymen are incited to enlist those within 
and without the local church for Christ, then the day will come when we have no 
"baptismless" churches.

John T. Bunn

INABELLE COLEMAN 



Biography 



I asked the New Year for some motto sweet, 
Some rule of life by which to guide my feet 5 
I asked and paused. He answered soft and low; 
"God's will to know." 

"Will knowledg-e, then, suffice, New Year?" I cried j 
But ere the question into silence died 
The answer came, "Nay, this remember, too — 
'God's will to do.' " 

Once more I asked, "Is there still none to tell?" 
And once again the answer sweetly fell ; 
"Yea; this one thing all other things above — 
'God's will to love.' " 

This poem became the maxim of life for Inabelle Graves Coleman, who later was 
to experience, in her own words, "the spiritual ecstacy of looking over the shoulder 
of God at work in the hearts and lives of the Chinese." Miss Coleman requested that 
no book be written of her life, but that any accomplishments be attributed to God's 
grace and His miracles. This brief sketch is intended, therefore, not to memorialize 
the human personality, but to magnify the compelling, constraining, controlling Power 
in a life fully dedicated to the will of God. 

It has been said that to understand a life you must frequently look into the child- 
hood, and so as we seek to impart to you the radiant example of a truly consecrated 
life, let us roll back the calendar to just prior to the end of the 19th century when on 
June 13, 1898, identical twin girls — Inabelle Graves and Jesablair, were born to Henry 
Gordon Coleman and Ina Wilkerson Coleman in Durham, North Carolina. "Friends 
from everywhere came to admire my babies, they were all pretty," said Mrs. Coleman. 
Six of the nine children lived to useful and active adulthood. On June 1, the follow T - 
ing year, mother Coleman carried the twins to be photographed. 

Four days later, both girls were stricken with dreaded dysentery. After three days, 
God in His wisdom took Jesablair on June 7, 1899. Baby foods had not then come 
into their own and Mother Coleman recalls the weeks of anxiety during the dangerous 
"second summer" as it was termed in those days; being concerned about the extreme 
care she must exercise with the one life now left in her hands. "Why had God taken 
the seemingly brightest child and left the quiet, timid and delicate one?" "The child 
was always hungry," the mother recalls, and "little by little regained her strength and 
composure." 

The Colemans soon moved to Lyons Station near Stem, North Carolina, where 
Father Coleman ran a general store, served as Railroad Agent and also as Postmaster. 
Inabelle was enrolled in Stem School where she graduated at the early age of fifteen. 
While quite young, the parents found that Inabelle could be trusted with the care of 
younger children, and they gave her this responsibility with the assurance that all would 



6 



Twelfth Annual Session 



be in perfect safety. Later, she was allowed to keep her father's '•books, which she did 
most efficiently. She was always a happy, obedient child, trustworthy and dependable, 
for early in life she learned the "love" way was the wisest, best way of all. Her be- 
haviour is remembered as being- "near perfect" 5 so noticeable was her good conduct 
that she was termed "unlike other children." The motto of her happy girlhood was 
"youth is the time for the cultivation and filling of the mind — opportunity is the 
golden word." 

The Coleman children were taught by their parents to always use good judg- 
ment in all things, and to be practical' — even in matters of religion. At the age of 
seven, Inabelle attended a protracted meeting at which time she accepted Christ as her 
Saviour and Guide for her life. Her parents deemed it wise to delay baptism, and it 
was not until the age of 1 6, while in college, that she experienced the ordinance of 
baptism back at her home church in Lyons. Earlv enjovments relative to her mis- 
sionary calling were reading good books — especially the Bible — and the admiring of 
teachers and ministers of the gospel. Her early convictions concerned the welfare of 
others and her entire future was to reveal her secrets of life: the keeping of eyes and 
heart open, loving beauty, finding adventure in everyday life, and praying for wisdom. 
Inabelle Coleman believed that every life had a God-given purpose and that as a pre- 
requisite for this purpose, God gave talents. 

Following graduation from Stem High School, her eagerness for knowledge led her 
to summer school at UNC. In the fall, she entered Woman's College in Greensboro and 
graduated in 191 8. Inabelle returned to her home community as assistant to the princi- 
pal of Creedmoor School and then as principal of Northside School. 

Her life was not without romance — indeed her whole life is a love-story — marriage 
however, and Red Cross work would have taken her elsewhere but a stronger force 
prevailed. She returned to Greensboro where for six years she was in charge of the 
French Department of Greensboro High School. During this time she was working 
in the Intermediate Training Union of First Baptist Church where Dr. J. Clyde Turner, 
who had profound influence on her missionarv career, was pastor. In 1926, Dr. and 
Mrs. Turner left for a trip to Palestine and secured Miss Coleman as full-time worker 
with young people for the summer. 

Upon their return, reports of her work were so good Dr. Turner suggested that 
they call her full-time by matching her city school teacher's salary. Money was not 
plentiful in the First Baptist Church at that time and one deacon volunteered to 
supply 75% of her salary if the churrh would supply the other 25%. She was 
emploved. Her alert mind, buoyant spirit, ambition, and determination led her to dream 
big dreams and attempt great things. In whatever realm she set to work in her 
optimistic, enthusiastic, prayerful way, there came miraculous response. It was said 
there was no bad boy in school she could not influence. 

Her winning- personality turned out many preachers from the contacts while at 
First Baptist Church in Greensboro. At the same time she was comforting sick and 
sorrowing people during her free evenings; there was none too lowdy to be held in 
her highest esteem. She was at this time writing regularly for the Daily Greensboro 
Neius and also contributing to Baptist publications. Her broad visions called for a 
scriptural motto such as, "I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me." 
In 1933 she was called to become editor of the Foreign Mission Magazine and moved 
to Richmond. She was also author of several books. In 1940 Miss Coleman made a 
journey to China to secure information for the Foreign Mission Board — especially in- 



Yates Baptist Association

formation about Willie Hayes Kelly, whose life story she had been requested to write. 

At this time she served as professor in the University of Shanghai on a contract 
basis to help meet the need there for teachers. She taught journalism and creative 
English. In addition to her university classes, she soon became engaged in a strenuous 
program of evangelism and social work including radio and jail services, orphan and 
refugee work, and aid to needy students — a service which was to become one of supreme 
interest to her over the years. Because of her magnetic qualities, her good spiritual 
judgment and genuine interest, new Christians relied heavily on her for guidance as 
she revealed to them the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

This was especially true in regard to social situations which they encountered in their 
war-racked land. . . . After one year, China got so ahold of Inabelle Coleman's heart 
that she wrote Dr. Charles Maddry, then Secretary of the Foreign Mission Board: 

"I am glad you do understand my wanting to remain out here . . . there are so 
many at home to do the needed tasks ... so very few of us here . . . facing such huge 
opportunities" . . . "response is more than hundred-fold . . . results more than heart 
can hold of joy and gladness . . ." 

Often she wrote of "walking on air" ... as she went about the task of making 
known the Good News to the Chinese. "Without one single exception, our students are 
interested in finding God or in knowing Him better . . ." 

She mentioned among the many phases of her evangelistic work the serving of 
hot bean milk to children who could only bring a crust of bread for lunch. Always 
in her heart were the children, the young people, the sick in body and spirit. Many 
wealthy and cultured Chinese were magnetically drawn through her influence, to Christ. 

In 1943, Miss Coleman was interned by the Japanese and spent 7 months in an 
internment camp. When asked if she witnessed any atrocities in camp, she replied that 
instead of cherishing bitterness toward the enemy, she rather prayed for them every 
day, looking beyond the evil, she sought to love and witness to them. The words 
fear and hate were not in her vocabulary. Always she went not only the second mile, 
but the third as well. She never regretted her decision to stay in China. She considered 
the damage to her health during internment merely a by-product of the war. It has 
been thought that an injury received there was the beginning of her suffering. Giving 
first importance to others, as was her practice, she considered her months in prison camp 
as nothing compared to the price paid by our soldiers. Often speaking of "God's 
extras," some of her ultimate joys came during the 75 days she spent in the civilian 
center helping orientate young Christians from happy homes to prison life. 

While on her way back to the States after repatriation, Miss Coleman was formally 
appointed a missionary of the Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Con- 
vention. Conditions in China prevented her return until the summer of 19465 mean- 
while, she studied at Columbia University in New York City and spoke and wrote in 
behalf of the missionary cause. 

From 1 946- 1 950 fa troubled period) she again taught at the University of 
Shanghai. Always she was deeply concerned for her students and their future, prayer- 
fully considering each personal request, many of whom were in desperate financial 
straits. In 1950, after the Communist occupation of China, Miss Coleman came back 
to the States on furlough. 

With the China mainland closed, she transferred to Taiwan to work with students 
in the government operated colleges in the capital, Taipeh. At the request of her 



s 



Twelfth Annual Session 



students, she began teaching- a Sunday morning- Sunday school*" class in the home she 
shared with two other missionaries. 

From this work Grace Baptist Church developed. Organized in 1953 with 103 
charter members, its membership doubled in one year. She called this church "God's 
mi rack — born of His providence." The church accepted as its challenge the three-fold 
ministry of Jesus — Preaching, Teaching and Healing. Today Grace Church has made 
phenomenal progress in all three of these areas of service, much of which is attributed 
to Miss Coleman's tireless efforts and financial support. 

Personal gifts nearly always found their way — not to Miss Coleman herself — but on 
to the various ministries for the Chinese which w r ere alwavs in her heart. Hundreds 
of students have been won to Christ and trained for Christian service through her 
effectualness. 

When in the States on furlough in 1957, Miss Coleman's illness was discovered. 
The last two years of her life she witnessed for her Lord from her hospital bed. Her 
physical pain and inactivity did not curtail her spiritual and mental dedication. She 
found numerous ways in which to bear testimony to the hospital staff, students, visitors, 
and friends who came her way. Her brilliant mind and virbrant personality continued 
to attract people from all walks of life, and she in turn introduced them to her Lord. 
Thousands of dollars in funds, for those always carried in her Chinese heart, were 
raised, even while on her bed of affliction, and always there went back to the donors, 
notes of appreciation — many written in her own handwriting, though she could scarcely 
lift her arms. These gifts were considered by her as sacred and often personal ones 
were transferred to the cause of Christ. Even from her sick bed, life was adventurous 
as she continued old and new enterprises for the Kingdom. All who touched her life 
were impressed by her courage and patience, her faith and fortitude, amidst intense suf- 
fering. 

Realizing that her life was rapidly drawing to a close, she fought almost frantically 
day by day for strength sufficient to enable her to complete the many details necessary 
for the publishing of her final book— ONE OF US. 

On October 15, 1959, the Lord laid down Inabelle's pen and stilled her voice 
that she might join the heavenly throng of witnesses, having obtained the smile of 
God's approval on a life well lived. Though not a long one, her life was full and 
rich in service to God and humanity. Her dynamic influence lives on to bless, to 
brighten, and to challenge.

Constitution 



Name 

Article i. This body shall be known as the Yates Baptist Association of North 
Carolina. 

Membership 

Article 2. The Association in session shall be composed of the duly elected messen- 
gers from the cooperating- Baptist Churches in Durham County and its adjacent territory, 
the regularly elected officers of the Association, and the members of the Associational 
Board. 

Article 3. Each church shall be represented at the annual meeting of the Associa- 
tion and at any special meeting during the year by messengers who shall be duly 
certified, and in the following ratio: 

O) Three for the first hundred members or fraction thereof and one for each ad- 
ditional hundred or fraction thereof, provided that the total number of mes- 
sengers shall not exceed ten. 

(2) All pastors of churches of the Association shall be recognized as messengers, in 
addition to those specified above. 

Article 4. Churches seeking to seat messengers in the Association shall apply to 
the Church Extension Committee prior to the annual meeting of the Association, giving 
evidence of their faith and order and their agreement to be received under the watch- 
care of the Association. Upon recommendation of the committee and the approval of 
the Association by a two-thirds majority of the members present and voting, the church 
or churches shall be received under the watchcare of the Association for a period of 
one year. It is understood that during the period of watchcare such churches will be 
accorded all the services of the Association and all its privileges with the exception 
of the right to seat voting messengers and to voting representation on the Associational 
Board. At the end of the year of watchcare, the church or churches may, by a two- 
thirds vote of the Association, be received into full fellowship of the Association or 
continued under watchcare or have the request for fellowship rejected. Upon admis- 
sion to full fellowship, the church or churches shall be authorized to seat duly elected 
messengers with voting privileges and voting members on the Associational Board. 

Article «j. The Association shall have power, upon giving notice of nine months 
and by two-thirds majority vote of messengers present and voting, to withdraw fellow- 
ship from any church that shall willfully depart from orthodox principles of the 
Christian religion as taught in the Bible and as believed by Baptists, or that fails to

Report Section 



HISTORY OF MT. GARMEL CHURCH 

It would be hard to find a church more colorful in history than Mt. Carmel 
whose third and last location is four miles south of Chapel Hill, on the Farrington 
Mill Road. Organized in 1803, a year prior to the inauguration of the first president 
of the University, John Caldwell, the early minutes of the church carry several names 
of faculty members. Indians were still numerous enough to cause some trouble. And 
running past the second Mt. Carmel site was a plank road. In the first Mt. Carmel 
structure there was a balcony where slaves sat for worship. This first building was 
also used as a school house for short-term subscription schools. 

No doubt the great revival of 1800 played a vital part in the birth of this church. 
At first converts met in brush arbors or in the open. As time passed these began to 
lay plans for housing their congregation. So the group moved into its first building 
on a high hill overlooking what is now the University Lake. The sanctuary of the 
present church was the entire structure of this house. Matthew J. McCauly gave the 
land for this project. 

In 1827 Mt. Carmel joined the Sandy Creek Association, having been dismissed 
that year from Flat River Association. Delegates who brought the letter were Thomas 
Weaver and Grey Huckabee. The next year the membership reported was fifty-five, 
with no baptisms. When Chapel Hill Baptist Church was organized, 1854, two of 
Mt. Carmel's leading members, W. H. Merritt and George W. Purefoy, helped in the 
organization. Also members had previously gone to help organize Mt. Gilead in 1824, 
and Lystra in 1852. 

For many years preaching was only twice a month — Saturday afternoon and the 
following Sunday. The pastor would travel many miles on horseback in the earlier 
years and later by buggy. Excommunication for failure to attend business meetings, 
or engaging in drinking or selling liquor was common. Preachers spent Saturday 
night in the home of some member. 

In 1873, at laying-by time, "a working" for the church was announced. The 
church was to be moved from the location west of Chapel Hill to the present location 
four miles south. Rev. George W. Purefoy donated the land on which this building 
stands. For many years the church stood just as the present auditorium. Later the 
front of the church with the steeple was built. Then two Sunday School rooms were 
added at the front, being followed later by like rooms at the back. While Dr. W. R. 
Wagoner was the pastor the cabin was built. At present an entirely new church is 
well under way. 

Many pastors, forty-five known, have served Mt. Carmel. Rev. R. J. Daniel, was 
probably the first. Rev. Walter C. Mitchell is present pastor. In the early years of 
its history Mt. Carmel was blessed with many ministerial sons. Abner Clopton was 
ordained in 18 18, I. L. Brooks in 1826, and W. H. Merritt was also ordained in these 
early years, as was James Hall. In more recent years, Rupert Merritt, Joseph Fowler 
and Vernon Sparrow have been ordained. Rev. Sparrow is now superintendent of 
Mills Home.

Twelfth Annual Session 



In 1 9 1 6 the first Missionary Union was formed and each year has seen a marked 
growth. Last year the Lottie Moon offering- passed the two hundred dollar mark. The 
Brotherhood is young- but its work is promising. 

As early as 1867, there is a report of a Sabbath School at Mt. Carmel, with Isiah 
Cole as Superintendent. In early years the school closed during winter months. The 
enrollment ranged from twenty-five to seventy-five from 1880 to 1900. In the last 
decade the average enrollment has been near the two hundred mark. 

Training Union was started in 1921 while Rev. J. B. Davis was pastor. Since then 
the union has been active except for the years 1 94.2-1 944..

HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY BAPTIST CHURCk 

The University Baptist Church at Chapel Hill, founded in 1854, is located in the 
heart of town across the street from the campus of the University of North Carolina. 
The original church building still stands today on the corner of Franklin and Church 
Streets. 

Elder William Henry Merritt was probably the first to conceive the idea of planting 
a Baptist Church at the University to be dedicated for the purpose of serving the 
University and the Chapel Hill community. In the early period of the history of the 
University, the Baptist constituencv in the village and in the University were served by 
the Mt. Carmel Baptist Church. Upon his death in 1850, Elder Merritt in his will 
bequeathed a then large sum of $1200 and two lots for the building of a "commodious" 
Baptist church in Chapel Hill. George W. Purefoy, the son-in-law of Elder Merritt, 
was chairman of the building committee and always headed the "Assement" list for 
early financial support of the church. The actual construction of the church building 
was begun before the organizational meeting of the new church took place 
in the home of W. G. Weaver. The building of which Elder Merritt had dreamed was 
completed in 1855. Elder Merritt, Dr. Purefoy and many of the first officers of the 
church had been active members of the Mt. Carmel Church. There were 38 charter 
members. 

The Baptist Church at Chapel Hill was received into the historic Sandy Creek 
Association at its 1854 session meeting with the Mt. Pleasant Meeting House, Randolph 
County, being presented by P. H. McDade and Isaac Hudson. The church withdrew 
from the Sandy Creek Association in 1869 to join the newly formed Mt. Zion Associa- 
tion. Permission to separate was given as follows: "on motion letters of dismissal 
were granted the following churches to join a new Association on the north side of 
Haw River, viz: Antioch, Bethel, Chapel Hill, Mt. Carmel, Lystra, Pleasant Grove, 
Mt. Gilead." 

In 1855 a "Sabbath" school was organized and a i860 report indicates that "Dr. 
William B. Harrell is the present superintendent with 2 assistants, 6 male, 5 female 
teachers, 35 female and 42 male pupils." 

The women organized very early after the founding of the church. At first they 
were designated as "The Sewing Society" and some of their first self appointed assign- 
ments were to decorate the church, buy a bell and to "Lift the debt." Later on they 
became the Women's Missionarv Societv; later still, the Women's Missionarv Union.

With the coming of Rev. J. W. Wilder as pastor in 1905, earnest efforts were made 
year by year to induce North Carolina Baptists to assist the local church in securing a 
new church house with adequate accommodations for the local church and the Baptist 
students attending the University. At the close of an evangelistic service led by 
Dr. Charles E. Maddry in October, 192 1, the church and local friends pledged $25,000 
for the new church. The State Mission Board and The Home Mission Board assisted 
the local congregation in the purchasing and construction of the present building'. For 
many years the State Missions Board subsidized the Baptist work here because the 
student ministry of the church was organized as a denominational responsibility. 
However, in 1950 the local church voted to carry the full financial load itself and re- 
lieve the Board of its assistance. In January, 1957, the church took the courageous 
step of voting to purchase for $250,000 land adjoining the church building for future 
needs of the congregation. To date funds for payment on this property have been 
available when payments were due. 

With the pending organization of the Binklev Memorial Church in Chapel Hill it 
was deemed advisable that The Baptist Church take unto itself a more specific name. 
On May 11, 1958 the members of this church voted to call their church "The Uni- 
versity Baptist Church." The church has a present membership of about 950, 200 
of whom are University students, their wives and families.

REPORT ON BIBLICAL RECORDER AND 
OTHER BAPTIST LITERATURE 

In this accelerated-living age we observe the trend toward mass conformity. The 
torrents of traffic, going in the same direction, have grown so large that the way must 
be broad for many there be that go there-in. With the priceless element, known as time, 
growing more scarce we like to have information quoted to us ; and when the news, 
even good, is relayed from mouth to mouth it tends to become distorted. This is not 
characteristic of printed matter. Usually that which is written is assumed to be true 
and often copyrights are used to protect his virtue. Would you dare to be different and 
seek to strengthen your position in the straight and narrow way with the printed pager 
In the school of Christian life the Bible is the real textbook and all other wholesome 
literature serves only to embrace it. Th.e Bible, with good literature to expose it's 
universal truths to God's children, is comparable to a textbook accompanied by a good 
teacher to expose its contents to a student. We can all broaden our understandings of 
Christian teachings as disciples (learners,) by meditating on the writings of leaders in 
that field. Problems are best solved by better-informed people. 

It is a joy to report on the availability of and progress being made through Baptist 
and Christian literature. Your state paper, "The Biblical Recorder" circulation has 
grown to near 65,000 and possibly more by this time. Recent changes have made it 
more attractive and legible as well as more informative. 

There are only two churches in our association that do not have either Recorder 
clubs or any every-family plan. There are at least 1,430 subscribers in the Yates 
Association. There should be more than this with a 20,000 resident membership. The 
small sum of 3 or 4 cents per week} depending on the plan selected, will bring this 



38 



Twelfth Annual Session 



publication, which has been rated among the top three state papers of the Southern 
Convention, postpaid into your home. I would urge you to consider the possibility of 
putting- the Recorder in your church budget and subscribe to the every family plan. 

Much could be said about the varied and numerous other Baptist papers, magazines, 
periodicals, tracts, and books that are available. I couldn't name them all if time and 
space permitted ; however, I would assure you that whatever your literature need might 
be there is a portion tailored almost to your individual need. Inquire about it and learn 
to be a better Baptist dedicated to the Glory and Honor of God.

J. E. Booth

II. COMMITTEE REPORTS 

A. Activities: See index for report. 

B. Finance: See index for report. 

There will be several other committees to bring- reports to this annual meeting. 
Due to the fact they were not given to our board for consideration, it was my thinking 
that they should follow the report of the Associational Board rather than to be a 
part of it. 

III. IN APPRECIATION 

I would like to take this opportunity to express my deep appreciation to our office 
staff, Mr. Mumford and Mrs. Crutchfield, to our associational clerk, Brother Harrell 
Perry, to every member of the many committees of our Association for assisting me in 
many ways during this year that I have been your moderator. I pray that in this 
annual meeting, we may work together in the spirit of Jesus Christ to the end that the 
will of God shall be done in every session. 

Respectfully submitted, 
V. S. Dowd, Moderator 

REPORT OF FINANCE COMMITTEE 

Your Finance Committee wishes to thank the churches and their leaders for the 
fine support they have given our Associational Program this year. The Treasurer's 
Report will show that we received $24,530.05 for the work of the Association during 
the past associational year. According to our records, this is the best year in the history 
of the Yates Association. 

We have this year purchased property located at the corner of Carver Street 
and Duke Homestead Road on the recommendation of the Church Extension Committee. 
The purchase price of this property was $15,000. We have paid $3,000 on this prop- 
erty from the funds received during the year. We have a definite commitment of 
$2,000 which will come from State Mission funds during the next 30 days. The 
balance of the purchase price of $10,000 is financed at the Security Savings and Loan 
Association for a period of 10 years. There are two houses on this property, and their 
present rental is $110 per month, which gives us sufficient income to meet the Savings 
and Loan monthly installments. 

We have also just about completed the construction of a caretakers home on the as- 
sembly grounds property. Funds for this were provided by contributions of materials 
and labor, funds from our regular budget, and a loan of $5,000 from the Security 
Savings and Loan Association. This loan is repayable $50 per month, and funds for 
this property will come from the budget item assembly grounds. 

We were also able to enlist a summer worker for the Association. His efforts were 
used primarily in a survey of the area north of Durham and in a Vacation Bible 
School at the Alston Avenue Church. 

In preparing the 1960-61 budget for your consideration, we again this year in 
June presented the budget to the Pastors and the Chairman of the Finance Committee 
of the Churches for discussion and informational purposes. We feel that this approach 
has helped our people to have a better understanding of the purposes to which our 
budget is directed. We did not reach our budget figures for last year, but trust that 
every effort will be made to reach the total amount of the budget recommended for 
this year in order that our Mission Program might move forward. 



40 



Twelfth Annual Session 



We are recommending- that the Finance Committee submit a balance sheet at the end 
of each year in addition to the usual financial statement of income and expenses, giving 
the properties and equipment owned by the Association, indebtedness, etc. We feel that 
this will give our people a clearer picture of the financial condition of our Association. 

We also recommend the establishment of a Yates Baptist Foundation for receiving 
permanent funds from wills and other sources for various Associational purposes. This 
has come to the attention of the Finance Committee from several sources. 

We also would like to express a word of appreciation for the fine co-operation the 
Committee has received from the Associational Office and from our Treasurer. We 
would like to again urge every church to make regular monthly remittances to our 
Treasurer this year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. Jethro Broadwell, Chairman

REPORT ON NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

The Ministry of our Baptist Hospital touches every area of our state. Last year 
it served more than 17,000 bed patients, with 150,000 visits being made to the clinics 
and offices. They came for examinations, medical treatment, skilled surgery, and 
spiritual guidance. Many of our homes, most of our churches, and almost all of our 
communities have been served by this ministry of healing. It touches the family life 
of about a quarter of a million of our people each year. 

Sickness is no respecter of persons or pocket books. It strikes the rich and poor 
alike — the widow, the orphan, the aged. There are times when they need such special- 
ized care as that available at our Baptist Hospital. The Mother's Day Fund provides 
money with which our Hospital gives assistance to those who cannot pay the full cost 
of their care. Our Hospital almost doubles our gifts with matching funds from welfare 
agencies and other gifts. In addition to this, the medical staff gives its services without 
charge to all service patients, except for available insurance payments. 

Probably we should ask ourselves if we as Christians should provide such a ministry 
for our needy, sick neighbors. Jesus and the New Testament writers give us the 
answer. But do we really want such a ministry? It cannot be provided except at great 
cost. Our Hospital receives about 3^)4% of our Co-operative Program funds for pay- 
ments on the buildings, purchase of expensive equipment, such as heart-lung machines, 
and for the Department of Pastoral Care. Our Mother's Day Fund provides the 
money to help pay the hospital bills of needy, sick persons. The amount of this fund 
determines for the most part the amount of help our Hospital can give. 

If we are serious about this ministry which was so close to the heart of our Lord, 
and want our Hospital to give help when our people need it, we are going to have to 
become serious about our giving to the Mother's Day Fund. Our Hospital is facing 
a grave financial problem, and if it is to give free service we are going to have to con- 
tribute the money to finance the program. 

The only way we can support this work is to plan for it, to make somebody in each 
church responsible for it, to let our people know about the need, and to challenge 
them to give of their means. Some of our churches over the state have been doing 
this, and our people have demonstrated that when this is done they will provide the 
necessary support. We come to ask you to do it in your church — not for the hospital, 
but for sick people who are in need.

H. L. Ferguson 
Hospital Representative

REPORT ON THE BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 
OF NORTH CAROLINA, INC. 

The Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina, Inc. is a multiple service agency 
providing Christian love and nurture for more than 800 boys and girls annually. The 
three homes are: Mills Home at Thomasville with 311 children, Kennedy Home at 
Kinston with 165, and Odum Home at Pembroke with 24 children. There are also, 
160 children in Foster Homes and 40 others who are assisted by Mother's Aid. Case 
work supervision is afforded 30 college students annually. 

Children attend public school and participate in all school activities. Opportunities 
for Christian commitment and spiritual growth are afforded on the campuses, in the 
cottages, and through the Churches. 



Yates Baptist Association 



51 



When applications for additions are received, well trained case workers make a 
thorough study of each situation to determine the need and the best possible plan of 
care for the child. 

The Social Service Department of the Children's Homes affords case work services 
throughout the state. Individuals, families, pastors, and Churches are entitled to this 
help upon request. 

The Baptist Child Care Program is supported through the Cooperative Program 
31.5 per cent, Thanksgiving Offerings 31.1 per cent, Once-A-Month Offerings 21.9 
per cent, Special Gifts and Endowment 15.5 per cent. 

Income for the past three years, has not been sufficient to meet minimum needs. 
Many children have been denied a Christian home whom we should have served. An 
increased Thanksgiving Offering is imperative this year. 

North Carolina Baptists have been earring for homeless and dependent children 
for 75 years. Appropriate observance of the 75th Anniversary will be made in No- 
vember. During these years, more than 8,000 children have been afforded life's best 
opportunities. The need for such services increases every year. 

John E. Roberts became Editor of CHARITY AND CHILDREN, June 1, i960. 
Under his leadership we invision this paper making an increasing contribution to the 
total life of our Baptist people. 

North Carolina Baptists will continue to love and serve dependent children. No 
other object is so worthy of service and sacrifice. Many areas of unmet need confront 
us each day. Your continued interest and increasing support will help us meet them. 

Respectfully submitted, 
C. M. Hight 

Orphanage Representative 

REPORT OF 
NORTH CAROLINA HOMES FOR THE AGING 

During the past nine years the North Carolina Homes for the Aging have been 
under the able and efficient direction of Rev. James M. Hayes, Sr. On Julv 1, i960 
he relinquished his office as superintendent to Rev. William A. Poole, who is now serving 
as superintendent. No man could have worked harder nor accomplished more than 
brother Hayes. The Baptists of North Carolina will always be grateful to him for 
his tireless efforts in behalf of the aging in our state. 

The new Superintendent is diligently working to develop the solid foundation on 
which we expect to continue building and expanding our ministry to the aging. 

Many blessings are in store for us in the tenth vear of our Homes for the Aging. 
The new Infirmary annex, at Winston-Salem constructed at a cost of $193,000 with 
28 new rooms is now in use. In addition to these rooms there is a nurses station, 
lounge, and restroom, a solarium, a room and autoclave for the sterilization of in- 
struments, three baths, a laundry, and a utility room. The building of the proposed 
new Hamilton Home in the eastern part of the state, which will provide facilities for 30 
additional residents ; is awaiting the approval of our state convention in November. 

At present there are sixty applicants on the waiting list, and new inquiries are pour- 
ing in daily. We now have a total of 106 residents in our three Homes — Resthaven, 
20; Albemarle, 345 Headquarters, 52. Even with our new facilities, it is possible to 
fill up to 500 rooms in the next two vears. We must attempt great things for God as 



52 



Twelfth Annual Session 



we plan for the- future in our ministry to the ever-growing number of the aging 
who need the loving care of North Carolina Baptists. 

One of the life-lines in our work is the vital relationship that we have with the 
pastors and churches in our Convention. We are increasingly dependent upon the 
prayers and financial support of the Churches. During the fiscal year October i, 1959 
to August 1, i960, we have received $82,521.20 from the churches. Of this amount, 
$76,352.70 was contributed through the Special Day Offering in February. In addi- 
tion to the Special Day Offering and designated gifts, we have received from the 
churches through the Cooperative Program, $39,365.19, during the period October 1, 
1959, July I, i960. Our annual support from the Cooperative Program is $50,000. 
We are profoundly grateful to God and to every one who has had a part in contributing 
to the worthy cause which we represent. 

During the past year over 30 churches in the Yates Association contributed $2,120.15 
in addition to the contributions made through the Cooperative Program. This is an 
increase of 24.8% over last year, and we hope our efforts for next year will continue 
to increase. 

We welcome visitors to the Homes at any time and always stand ready to render 
service to the aging. Our only limitation is the lack of space. Let us, therefore dedi- 
cate ourselves to the end that more space will be available at the earliest possible mo- 
ment. 

Respectfully submitted, 
R. T. Howerton 
Associational Representative 

REPORT OF EVANGELISM COMMITTEE 

There never was a time when the Gospel of Jesus Christ was not urgent, but many 
Christians have been slow to sense it. If circumstances can shock us out of complacency, 
then every Christian should be alerted today to the urgency of evangelism in this 
Atomic Age. 

Southern Baptist have been blessed by God as few people have been in Christian 
history. However, along with these blessings there are inescapable responsibilities. 
We are Christians and we must share with those who are not Christians. We are the 
children of light and we must share with those who sit in darkness. Since we are 
blessed we must seek to be a blessing. In his message before the Southern Baptist 
Convention meeting in Miami Beach, Florida, Billy Graham said, "America is the 
world's greatest mission field." If this be true, and no doubt it is, and if Southern 
Baptists are the leading Evangelical denomination in America, we must match this hour 
with total dedication to evangelism. 

Therefore, we recommend: 

1. That we strive to reach the "Evangelism Standard of Excellence" for our asso- 
ciation annually; 

2. That our churches strive to use the two weeks, April 2-16, 1961 for their in- 
dividual church revivals, as provided in our associational calendar of activities in order

REPORT ON THE INABELLE COLEMAN FUND 

At the direction of the Association in its last annual session, the Moderator ap- 
pointed our Committee of three (Rev. Jack Wilder, Mrs. M. A. Ham and Rev. Her- 
bert Baker) "to promote the Inabelle Coleman Scholarship Fund at Meredith Col- 
lege, seeking to augment this fund to help to meet the $10,000 goal set by Miss 
Coleman for the purpose of educating daughters of Chinese pastors." 

Our Committee has met on several occasions, and in May a letter was sent to all 
the Pastors and WMU Presidents in the Yates Association, as well as to some close 
friends of Miss Coleman, asking them to aid in this effort in whatever way it seemed 
best to them. 

This fund has already been established at Meredith College. Its primary purpose 
is to provide a college education for a namesake of Miss Coleman, Inabelle Chang, 
daughter of the Rev. Mr. Teddy Chang, a Chinese Baptist pastor. Any income over 
and above that reserved for Miss Chang > is to be used as scholarships for daughters 
of other Chinese Baptist pastors. In the event Miss Chang does not use the scholar- 
ship by 1977, the college will have the discretion of using the fund to assist other 
students, with preference being given to foreign students. 

Up to the present time over $300.00 has been given through the Yates Association 
for this purpose, and your Committee hopes that interest in this matter will be con- 
tinued until Meredith College has received the $10,000 Miss Coleman had in mind 
for this purpose. Checks for this fund should be sent to our Associational Treasurer 
and marked for "The Inabelle Coleman Scholarship Fund." 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. H. M. Baker 

ASSOCIATIONAL SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 
1959-60 

Dr. William Phelps taught at Yale University for forty years and on one occasion 
wrote, "I believe a knowledge of the Bible without a college course is more valuable 



54 



Twelfth Annual Session 



than a college course without the Bible." This is significant coining from a man who 
spent his life in higher education. 

The Sunday School Department of the Southern Baptist Convention realizing the 
important part that Sunday School workers have in religious education had as its 
theme, "Teaching them all things." 

The Associational work this year has been along the line of teaching improvement. 
The first Sunday School Conferences were held at Gorman church April 19. In the 
opening assembly Mrs. E. L. Kerley, Jr., the Assoc'l. Sunday School Supt. of Training, 
discussed the "Church Study Course for teaching and training." Among the questions 
asked and answered were, How does the new system differ from the old? And whv 
did the S.S. Board change the system? In the age group conferences that followed 
different teaching methods were discussed and studied. 

The second S.S. Conferences were held at Bethesda church July 12. In the open- 
ing session Rev. Bill Pearson illustrated "using Visual Aids in teaching." And in 
the age group conferences that followed teaching aims were the subjects of the Dept. 
Supts. Approximately one hundred were present at each meeting. 

The S.S. also participated in the Ass'n-wide Training School which was held at 
Grace church October 17, 18, 20, 21. A total of thirty-two books were taught of 
which 7 were S.S. training books. The enrollment for this course was approximately 575. 

The V.B.S. Clinic was held this year at Watts St. church on March 24 under the 
direction of Mrs. Alex Lacy the Associational V.B.S. Supt. Age-group conferences 
were held for all age group workers. Special courses offered were as follows: 
Discipline, Story-telling, Audio-Visual Aids, Music, Handwork, and Recreation. Ac- 
cording to the V.B.S. reports the highest grades went to 1) Fieldcrest, 2) Holloway 
St., 3) Lowe's Grove. 

For the new year associational S.S. workers have been elected, and in August a 
planning and training meeting for these workers was held at Holloway St. church. 

The S.S. theme for the new year is "Outreaching for the Unreached." 

Respectfully submitted, 
Wayne Nutt, Supt. 

THE REPORT OF THE ORDINATIONS COMMITTEE 

The Ordinations Committee, at the request of the Temple Baptist Church, the 
Edgemont and Mt. Pisgah Baptist Churches, and the Watts Street Baptist Church, 
has met three times during the past year to examine candidates for ordination to 
the Baptist ministry. 

Following questioning about Christian experience, the call to the ministry, Baptist 
doctrines and Baptist church practices, your committee recommended that John Stone, 
Tommie Roberts and Arden C. Hander be ordained by the churches requesting their 
examinations. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Rev. H. M. Baker, Chairman 

Ordinations Committee 

REPORT OF THE ASSEMBLY GROUNDS COMMITTEE 

With each succeeding year, more and more groups from our churches are using 
the facilities of our 55-acre assemblv grounds. 



Yates Baptist Association 



55 



During the past year four main things have been accomplished: 

1) The area around the pond has been re-worked for proper drainage with ditches 
and underground pipe. By eliminating most of the surface water the pond has cleared 
considerably. 

2) Perhaps the biggest accomplishment of the past year, however, has been the 
erection of a 4/^2-room frame house for a caretaker. With several unavoidable delays 
the house is being completed this week. This has been made possible by donations from 
several individuals, especially Mr. O. B. Nichols of the Olive Branch church, plus the 
borrowing of $5,000 from Security Savings & Loan as authorized by our associational 
board. 

At present time it appears that the house will cost $5,900 with an expenditure of 
not to exceed $500 from the regular budget. 

3) On Monday night of this week the committee met at the Assembly Grounds at 
the new home to interview the Rev. Rav Hamilton, student in Southeastern Seminary 
and pastor of the Wakeminster Church in the Raleigh Association (two miles from 
the grounds) as a possible caretaker. As a result of that meeting the committee rec- 
ommends the employment of this young man as caretaker. A written contract will be 
drafted by the committee on the scope of his work. He will be given the use of the 
house as remuneration for caring for our grounds. Brother Hamilton is married and 
they have one small child. 

4) The committee also recommends that an appropriate dedication service be held 
at the home on the Sunday afternoon of November 27. 

We rejoice in what God has enabled us to accomplish during the past year. 

Respectfully yours, 
Morris Currin, Chairman 

REPORT OF THE CERTIFICATE OF MERIT COMMITTEE 

The Certificate of Merit committee recommends that the present requirements and 
conditions for the Certificates of Merit as stated on pages 38-39 of the 1959 Associa- 
tional Minutes be continued for the 1960-61 church year. 

We also recommend that the Association look with favor upon the Church Achieve- 
ment Program which is sponsored by the Church Development Department of the 
North Carolina Baptist State Convention; and that our churches prayerfully consider 
and study the possibilities of adopting such a program of work as a supplement to 
the Certificate of merit program; that our Superintendent of Missions promote and 
encourage our churches to participate in both programs of work. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT ON LONG RANGE PLANNING 

The Long Range Planning Committee has been unable to carry through with 
future plans for the Association because of the pressing needs of the many present de- 
mands of the Associational Program. We have had several Committee meetings, and 
discussed a number of future needs for our Association, but we have not come to any 
definite decision for a report. 



56 



Twelfth Annual Session 



We, therefore, recommend that a Committee be appointed for this Associational 
year to carry on the study and recommend a Loung-Range Program as the needs arise. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John H. Bunn, Chairman 

REPORT OF THE CHURCH EXTENSION COMMITTEE 

While we recognize that there is need for the purchase of desirable sites for future 
churches in many places within our associational territory, your committee concen- 
trated its efforts towards the urgent needs north of Durham. 

We invited Dr. Lowell Spivey, Supt. of the Division of Missions, to visit us and 
to drive through this section. He strongly urged that one, if not two missions be 
started in this area. Dr. Douglas Branch, Secy, of our Baptist State Convention of 
North Carolina later visited this section with us and agreed that work should be 
started as soon as possible. Both of these brethren encouraged us saying they would 
recommend that the Division of Missions should give us substantial financial assistance 
in this work. 

After intensive search, we found an available piece of property of three acres north 
of the intersection of Carver St. and Duke Homestead Rd. Our committee and the 
Finance Committee recommended to the Associational Board that this property be 
purchased, and on Sunday, March 20, the Board authorized the purchase at a cost of 
$15,000.00. At the present time $3,000.00 has been paid through special contribu- 
tions and from the regular funds of our budget. $10,000.00 has been financed at the 
Security Savings and Loan Association with monthly payments being met by rentals 
from the property. The remaining $2,000.00 is anticipated from state missions funds 
in the near future. 

We invited Brother Ernest Upchurch, Secretary of the Church Development De- 
partment of our Convention to make a survey and make recommendations as to what we 
should do about beginning work in this area. In a meeting with members of our com- 
mittee, Sunday October 16, Brother Upchurch stated that work should be started, but 
urged that property on the opposite side of this intersection should be considered for a 
church site. However, upon investigation, our committee found that there was not 
enough acreage available, the lots were only 200 feet deep and the cost would have 
been prohibitive. 

1. Carrboro Baptist Church be received into full fellowship in our Association. 

2. Hope Valley Baptist Church be received into full fellowship in our Association. 

3. We recommend that the request o £ ihe Fellowship Baptist Church be received 
with favor and that according to our constitution they be received under the watch-care 
of the Association for a year. 

4.. We believe the property we now own is a desirable site for a church and we rec- 
ommend that it be developed as soon as possible.

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD ORGANIZATION 

1959-60 has been a difficult year of transition in Brotherhood work in our Asso- 
ciation. Several organizations temporarily fell by the wayside. 

However, with the introduction of the new organizational set-up throughout the 
Southern Baptist Convention, together with new materials, our church Brotherhoods 
are showing a renewed vitality. 

Four meetings were held this year. In January the annual Ladies' Night Banquet 
was held in First church with 200 present. In May a meeting was called in Rose of 
Sharon church for the purpose of introducing the new Royal Ambassador Campcraft 
program. The Rev. B. W. Jackson of Raleigh, State R.A. Counselor came as 
special instructor. 

In July the Rev. B. W. Jackson came back with the Rev. Louis Christian, Region 4 
Brotherhood President, also of Raleigh, as speakers at the annual Man-Boy Night at 
Temple church. 

The final event of the year was the annual Brotherhood Workshop held in Sep- 
tember in Braggtown church simultaneously with the W.M.U. Leadership Institute. 

The future is bright in Brotherhood work throughout our Association, our state 
and our southland. We pray God's blessings upon Mr. Aubrey Wheeler, our new 
president as he leads us into this new era. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George Worthington, President 

DIGEST OF CHURCH LETTERS 

I present for your attention the following items of interest taken from the 1959-60 
Church Letters: 

1. Three churches dedicated new educational buildings and three other churches 
broke ground for new buildings. 

2. Two churches installed air-conditioning and one purchased a Pastorium. 

3. One church was the recipient of property for a new church site and voted to re- 
locate the church site. 

4. One church purchased lots adjacent to their church for parking facilities. 

5. Other churches are in the process of building, redecorating or improving facili- 
ties to take care of the growing need of church worship and study. 

There have been thirteen pastors to accept calls from churches and to come into 
our Association during the past year; we have four churches without pastors at the 
present. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Harrell B. Perry 

RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE REPORT

Harrell B. Perry, our Program Committee Chairman, the Rev. J. Henry Coffer, out- 
Superintendent of Mission, the Rev. Hubert S. Mumford, and all others who have 
rendered excellent service that the current program be helpful and constructive.

meals served by the ladies of these churches.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MISSIONS 

1959-60 was a year that will long be remembered in the Yates Baptist Association. 
With so many "irons in the fire" and with so many changes in personnel in our churches, 
it has been difficult at times. Thirteen new pastors alone have been called to our 
churches. 

Much has happened during the year. Over three acres were purchased for $15,000 
at the intersection of Duke Homestead Road and Carver Street for a new church. 
A survey of the area was taken during the summer and a new work will be started 
as soon as possible. Rent from the two houses has taken care of the monthly payments. 
The Rev. George Hill was employed to conduct the survey, and he was used also to 
conduct a similar survey in the Alston Avenue Baptist Church area. 

We rejoice in the completion of the 4^/2-room caretaker's house on the Assembly 
Grounds for $5,900, and in the employing of the Rev. Ray Hamilton, student pastor of 
the Wakeminster Baptist Church in the Raleigh Association (two miles from the 
grounds) as caretaker. The house will be dedicated on Sunday afternoon, November 27. 

Although the application of Binkley Memorial Baptist Church to come into our 
fellowship was rejected, it was voted to give them the Conner Ridge property north 
of Glen Lennox, Chapel Hill. 

During the year we conducted the most successful Central School in the history of 
Yates Association with 32 courses taught, 35 churches participating, and 359 awards 
earned. Miss Nannie Mae Herndon was honored at the annual meeting and was pre- 
sented a gift upon the completion of 10 years as Associational Training Union Di- 
rector. The Association went on record as recommending the Church Achievement 
Program to the churches. It was agreed to set up a Yates Baptist Foundation for re- 
ceiving capital assets from wills and other special bequests. 

Four missions have been organized during the year by two churches. Two churches 
have been brought into full fellowship of the association and one under watchcare. 
Our Constitution and By-Laws were revised for clarity and completeness. 

A budget of $33,200 was adopted for this present year, and a Sunday School En- 
largement Campaign has been planned tentatively for next spring. Simultaneous 
revivals have also been planned for the springs of 1962, 1963, and 1964. 

All this indicates to us that the past year has been one of worthwhile endeavor. 
Finally we are beginning to crystalize long-range plans and so many conditions point 
to a very bright future. 

Respectfully yours, 
Hubert S. Mum ford
